The Flexible Double Master Degree provides enormous flexibility through being able to combine any two degrees available in the program for which the entry requirements are met and, by cross counting of electives, completing two degrees in one year less than completing the degrees separately. For students who are eligible for credit for previous degrees or work experience, the double degree may require as little as two years.
