The Master of Business Administration/Master Science in Conflict Management is a dual degree offered by the Coles College of Business Administration and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The primary objective of this program is to prepare 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.
To be admitted into the dual degree program, the applicant must specify the option at the time of application to the Graduate School. Students interested in applying for the MBA-MSCM dual degree program should consult with both the MSCM Director and MBA Director with regard to admission requirements and required courses.
(Note: Personal interviews will be conducted whenever possible and responsible work, community service, and leadership experience will be considered).
