About the MEM/MBA and MF/MBA

The Duke MEM/MBA and MF/MBA programs are truly interdisciplinary in nature and diverse in scope and breadth to enable students to tailor their academic experiences to their individual interests. In the intensive three-year joint degree program, students spend time immersed at both the Fuqua School of Business and the Nicholas School of the Environment, with access to additional classes in energy and environment disciplines at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, Sanford School of Public Policy, School of Law, and other Duke departments across campus.

Duke MEM/MBAs and MF/MBAs are part of an elite cohort of students at Duke, joining the Duke community and participating in clubs, classes, and projects specifically for joint degree from the very beginning of your time here.  EDGE serves as an unofficial “home” for the MEM/MBA and MF/MBA students, working closely with these students to support their academic and career interests.
