Joint and Dual MS Admissions

Main content start

MBA students currently enrolled in Stanford's Graduate School of Business (GSB),  and JD students at Stanford Law School (SLS) are eligible to submit an E-IPER joint degree application during Winter Quarter of their first year.  MA and MS students across Stanford’s seven schools, MD students in the School of Medicine, or students pursuing a PhD in another Stanford department are eligible to submit an E-IPER dual degree application during Winter Quarter of their first year, pending approval of their home graduate degree program.


All applicants must hold a B.A. or B.S. degree from an accredited US college or university or its equivalent from an international institution of recognized standing, as listed on the Graduate Admissions site.

Joint and Dual MS applicants must also apply to and be accepted by, or have already matriculated in the M.B.A. program in the Graduate School of Business (GSB),  the J.D. program in Stanford Law School (SLS), School of Medicine (SoM), or M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. program in another Stanford School or department. E-IPER does not offer a stand-alone MS degree and the Joint MS is not a pathway for entering E-IPER's PhD program.

Information Sessions for Current Stanford Students

E-IPER holds information sessions for prospective applicants who are CURRENT students in the Graduate School of Business, Stanford Law School, Ford Dorsey Master's in International Policy program, School of Medicine, and Graduate School of Education during Autumn and Winter quarters.
