We're collaborating to increase your business know-how
The M.S.W. /M.B.A is a joint collaboration between the College of Social Work and the College of Business. The joint graduate degree is designed for students in both programs who wish to expand their understanding of the connection between these two fields of study and gain expertise working in social services agencies.
The credit hours for Advanced Standing social policy and administration (SPA) social work students would total 33 and for business administration students, there would be 36 hours for a total of 69 hours. Normally the number of credit hours for the MSW is 39 and the MBA is 42 for a total of 81 hours. Those SPA students who are in the Traditional MSW program (61 credit hours) or the clinical concentration may be eligible for this joint degree but will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
