I am currently waiting to hear from several different schools regarding applications for dual degree programs in business and planning. I have been working for several years at a small architecture/RE development firm in DC and would like to work as a project manager or for some quasi-governmental development/planning agency after grad school.
Is the dual degree a good choice? I have also contemplated getting a MS Real Estate, but I feel that the scope of study in those programs might be a little too restrictive.
What are everyone's impressions of these dual programs? Are there certain professions that these degrees gear one towards/pigeon-hole one into?
