Students discussing at DSI

Combining the DSI’s action-oriented curriculum with Darden’s top-ranked MBA program, students who pursue this dual degree will be poised to become coveted hires and indispensable leaders. 

Prospective dual degree students will first apply to the Darden School of Business. Once that Darden School of Business application has been submitted, prospective dual degrees will need to complete a separate application to the DSI. On the “Program” page of the DSI application, select that you are applying to a dual degree program, and select MBA+MSDS as the dual degree program to which you are applying.

Application deadlines

Application deadlines will be released before October 2018. Tuition and fees will be the sum of the standalone MBA and MSDS programs.
