Social and economic development policy majors can complete this combined program in five years. Any time after the fourth semester, students may request admission to the MPA program offered by Illinois Tech’s Stuart School of Business. Students who are granted provisional admission may then take one MPA course per semester which is counted toward both their BS program and their MPA program. Final admission to the MPA is made during the eighth semester. The BS degree is awarded at the end of the eighth semester, and the MPA degree is completed during the fifth year.
