Hey, I'm a junior looking into dual degree undergraduate programs. Can anyone recommend some good schools and programs to start looking at? Ideally, I'd like to be able to combine my interests in business and computer science.

Hello! It's great that you're interested in pursuing a dual degree program to combine your passions for business and computer science. There are several universities with outstanding dual degree programs that could be a perfect fit for you. Here are some recommendations:

1. University of Pennsylvania — The Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology (M&T) allows you to combine a Bachelor of Science in Economics from The Wharton School and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from The School of Engineering and Applied Science. While not specifically computer science, you can choose a concentration in Computer Science within the engineering portion.

2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) — MIT offers a flexible degree program that allows students to combine computer science (through Course 6-3 in their Electrical Engineering and Computer Science major) with business courses at the Sloan School of Management. While not an official dual degree, you can tailor your studies to fit your interests in both areas.

3. Carnegie Mellon University — CMU's Integrated Bachelor's and Master's of Science in Information Technology and Bachelor's in Business Administration (BAM) is a unique program, but it may fit your interests. Students pursuing the BAM program earn a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree in 4-5 years.

4. Lehigh University — The Computer Science and Business (CSB) program provides a comprehensive curriculum that combines elements of both computer science and business. Graduates of this program receive a Bachelor of Science degree with majors in Computer Science and Business.

These are just a few examples of the many dual degree programs offered at various universities. Make sure to explore each program's specifics, requirements, admissions process, and workload. Keep in mind, these programs can be highly competitive and may have separate application processes or requirements. Good luck with your search!
