ME/MBA Cooperative

In conjunction with Mays Business School, the Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a Master of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering and Master of Business Administration (ME/MBA) dual degree that allows students to complete both degrees in approximately 2.5 years. This program prepares students for leadership roles in many areas of biomedical engineering and business with specific MBA training in leadership, management, human resources, teambuilding, communications, marketing, finance, accounting, strategy and technology. The goal of the ME/MBA degree program is to produce leaders in biomedical engineering and business. The Mays MBA Program website, (http://mays.tamu.edu/full-time-mba) contains more detailed information on the MBA program and curriculum.

Student Application Process:

  1. Submit an application to the ME (at http://www.applytexas.org)
  2. Submit an application to the MBA (at http://mays.tamu.edu/full-time-mba/application-process).  PRIOR to submitting your application, you must email Lessa Crawford at lcrawford@mays.tamu.edu to request an application fee waiver.  Without this step, you will be required to pay the application fee for both programs.
  3. A complete application package will consist of the below documents, all of which should be submitted through the ME ApplyTexas application.  No additional or duplicate documents need be submitted to the MBA program.
    • Each of the above applications
    • Application fee for BMEN ME only, as the MBA application fee is waived for dual degree students
    • Statement of purpose, which should provide an explanation as to your motivation for selecting the dual degree program
    • GRE scores
    • All university transcripts
    • Resume
    • Three letters of recommendation
  4. The deadline for ALL required applications and documents to be submitted is January 15th.  Applications received after that will only be considered for the Master of Engineering program.
  5. Applicants will be notified by the Department of Biomedical Engineering regarding the admissions decision. This program is extremely competitive and only a small number of students are admitted each year.

Program Timeline:

Students applying to the ME/MBA program will begin with the MBA portion of the program.  This eighteen-month degree program is condensed into twelve months specifically for dual degree students.  Following completion of the MBA program, you will transition directly into the ME program.  This can typically be completed in 1.5 years, but is flexible depending on previous degrees, biomedical engineering background, and the length of the mandatory internship.  Students applying to the ME/MBA program from the Texas A&M Department of Biomedical Engineering are required to participate in the Fast Track program during their senior year, allowing for an earlier graduation timeline.

Scholarships:

All incoming MBA students, including ME/MBA students are automatically considered for scholarship support during the MBA portion of the program. No additional scholarship application is required.  No funding is available during the ME portion of the program.
