Dual Degree Programs Hamline's dual degree programs will put you to work, gaining hands-on training across sectors and endowing you with the skills and experiences employers want. Business Administration and Nonprofit Management (MBA/MNM) Business Administration and Public Administration (MBA/MPA) Public Administration and Nonprofit Management (MPA/MNM) Students can complete two graduate degrees in 18 courses (72 credits)—fewer than the 24 courses (96 credits) required to complete the degrees separately. The programs were designed for working professionals with evening classes and flexible scheduling. Why a Dual Degree? Complex issues of today require a multi-sector approach, with government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private companies all playing critical roles. Developing skills and knowledge in other sectors can improve performance in their chosen sector and increase opportunities for cross-sector partnerships.
