Business program

The combined Bachelor's + Master's degree programs allow students to complete 12 graduate credit hours while still undergraduates. These 12 graduate credit hours will count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs. ​

DePaul Undergraduate Degree + Marketing (MS)

The Master of Science in Marketing is designed to provide hands-on marketing experience under the mentorship of faculty who are experts in the professional world.  The program will provide you with a broad-based knowledge of marketing strategy, consumer trends and data analysis, effective and ethical decision making and business communications.

DePaul degree-seeking undergraduate students interested in earning a Master of Science in Marketing may apply to the Marketing (MS) combined program.  Students may be able to obtain both degrees in an expedited period, typically in five years.

  • Junior standing or higher (at least 88.0 credits)
  • A minimum cumulative DePaul grade point average of 3.200
Course Title Quarter Hours

Students who have taken MKT 376 as undergraduates may substitute a Marketing elective for MKT 576.

These three courses may double-count up to 12 credits towards both degree programs.  The undergraduate degree will be awarded at the completion of all undergraduate work while the MS in Marketing will be awarded upon completion of the remaining graduate level work.
