MBA/MS Program

The Erb Institute is a partnership between the Ross School of Business and the School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) at the University of Michigan.

We prepare leaders committed to creating a socially and environmentally sustainable society through the power of business.

Our core program is a dual-degree MBA/MS, which began in 1996. The dual degree may be completed in either 5 or 6 semesters, depending upon how a student chooses to structure their program of study.
