  • In partnership with the Coles College of Business, we now offer a dual degree program the combines the skills of the Master of Science in Conflict Management and the Master of Business Administration. The MSCM/MBA dual degree prepares students for competitive leadership and managerial positions in careers requiring extensive understanding and interaction with conflict management and business acumen.

    The students’ desire for this program comes from the extensive interaction between the two sectors in areas such as global project management, negotiations, and contracting. The programs are completed in 53 credit hours rather than the 72 hours that would be necessary if they degrees were pursued separately.

  • KSU is committed to developing innovative programs that are responsive to the rapidly changing economic, social and political climate and to the interdependence of sectors (public, private and nonprofit). Therefore, KSU is offering the first dual degree MSW/MBA program in the state of Georgia. “In recent decades, social work practitioners have increasingly been called upon to think entrepreneurially to seek private funding and to collaborate with nongovernmental organizations to provide social services and goods” (c.f. Lee, 2016, p. 209). Similarly, companies have become more socially responsible because of consumer demand, employee morale, potential to develop new markets, and a desire to create sustainable business practices that focus on triple-bottom line (preserve wellbeing of people and planet while making a profit).
