Offered in conjunction with Washington University's Olin Business School, this joint degree program prepares architects and urban designers to be both thoughtful designers and effective managers and developers. Both the Master of Architecture (MArch) and Master of Urban Design (MUD) degrees may be combined with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. Career opportunities that stem from these dual degree arrangements are in the architecture, business, and development professions; community development and planning; housing development; and public policy. Students may start their initial year in either school.

Students entering the MArch 2 program who have also been admitted to the MBA program will need 3 to 4 years of graduate work to complete the MArch/MBA joint degree program. The requirements and duration of study for students admitted to other MArch programs are determined on a case-by-case basis.

The MUD/MBA joint degree program takes at least 3 years to complete. Students spend two semesters and a summer in the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design completing the MUD requirements and four semesters in the Olin Business School completing the MBA requirements.
