Dual Degree Program: Master of Science in Conflict Management & Master of Business Administration


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.
