The undergraduate curriculum in Management Science and Engineering provides students training in the fundamentals of engineering systems analysis to prepare them to plan, design and implement complex economic and technological management systems where a scientific or engineering background is necessary or desirable. Students complete courses in accounting, calculus, computer science, economics, organizational theory, mathematical modeling, optimization, probability, and statistics.

Coterminal BA/BS & MS

After completing 120 units toward a Stanford bachelor's degree, undergraduates may apply to add a master degree to their bachelor degree, working on the two degrees concurrently.  The degrees may be conferred at the same time, or the master degree may be conferred after the bachelor degree.
