Rethinking the management of the social sciences

We are pleased to offer under our dual degree programs the PHD IN ECONOMICS OR POLITICAL SCIENCE/MBA, or PHD IN ECONOMICS OR POLITICAL SCIENCE/EMBA.  These exciting dual degree programs combine Ph.D level research and coursework with a slightly abbreviated MBA or EMBA curriculum, providing a comprehensive examination of the global economy from both business and political economy perspectives. Students qualify for competitive careers in various fields, including the non-profit sector, the corporate arena, governmental organizations, and consulting companies.

The training focuses on:

  • Advanced analytical thinking and research skills while experiencing a full range of business disciplines
  • Strategic pro-active decision making and problem-solving approaches
  • Applied practical knowledge in addition to the theories behind the practice
  • The resources necessary for positions dealing with partnership between knowledge producers, corporations, governmental agencies, and non-profit institutions.


Graduates earn both a Ph.D in Economics or Political Science and an MBA (or EMBA). These programs require a total of 96 units of course work, forty-eight (48) units from the Division of Politics and Economics (DPE) and forty-eight (48) units from the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management.

Taken as a dual degree, students save approximately 32 units of coursework, equivalent to an extra year and a half of full-time study.   Students must apply to both SPE and the Drucker-Ito School.  Students who are currently in a Ph.D program in the Division of Politics and Economics (DPE) or the MBA (or EMBA) program in the Drucker-Ito School may apply to join the dual degree program if fewer than 16 units have been completed at the time of application. Applicants should demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and excellent scores on either the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), as well as prior professional work experience.
