1 Master of Business Administration-Master of Science in Management Information Science: Department of Business Administration, College of Business Administration; Department of Information Systems & Quantitative Analysis, College of Information Science & Technology Vision Statement In today's context of globally integrated and interdependent businesses, ubiquitous information technologies, and a mobile workforce, it is critical that graduate education provides students opportunities to develop integrated business and technology skills. The primary purpose of this dual degree program is to provide this integration by enabling students to complete the MBA and MS in MIS degrees simultaneously. This track is designed for dedicated students who are willing to take on the challenges related to graduate education from two perspectives Business Administration and Management Information Systems. As such, this program involves intensive preparation in both business administration and information systems and a specialization in an area that combines both backgrounds. The dual degree program requires 57 hours of course work beyond foundation requirements. Students who wish to pursue this option must work closely with an adviser to develop an integrated plan of study at an early stage.

Students earning three "C/C+" grades, or a grade of "C-" or below, will be automatically dismissed from the DD program. Dismissed students will be immediately administratively withdrawn from all courses in which they are enrolled for DD credit. Students who have been dismissed may not enroll in any courses for DD credit in any subsequent semester or summer session until reinstatement has been granted by the Dual- Degree Program Academic Standards Committee (DDPASC) comprised of the 2 GPC Chairs and 1 faculty member from each GPC. Students who have been dismissed from the DD program may submit a written petition for reinstatement to the DDPASC. Students petitioning the DDPASC for reinstatement may not enroll in any course for DD credit until after the DDPASC has ruled on the petition. Upon receiving a petition for reinstatement, the DDPASC will evaluate the student's written petition for reinstatement. As part of the reinstatement petitioning process, the DDPASC reserves the right to examine the student's academic record and reserves the right to speak to any previous instructor who has taught the student; this information may be used by the DDPASC in the reinstatement decision. Information provided by previous instructors will not be shared with the student. Reinstatement is a privilege and not all students who are dismissed will be reinstated. Students who have been reinstated will serve a probationary period at the DDPASC's discretion and must satisfy the probationary conditions specified by the DDPASC. In addition to probationary conditions, reinstated students will be subject to additional reinstatement conditions as specified by the DDPASC. These reinstatement
6 conditions will include retaking one or more courses in which the student must earn a grade of "B" (3.0) or higher (the exact grade requirements for retaken courses may in fact be higher than "B" (3.0)). Students not satisfying the probationary or reinstatement conditions will be automatically dismissed. Grades Earned in Repeated Courses When making decisions related to the Quality of Work Standards issues outlined in the UNO Graduate Catalog, the Dual-Degree Program Academic Standards Committee (DDPASC) will consider the initial grade(s) received in a course as well as the most recent grade received for the course. This approach differs from the method used to calculate GPA in a student s mavlink/degreeworks file, where the most recent grade replaces the grade received in the previous course attempt.
