MBA/MSW Degree (Master of Social Work)

The MSW/MBA program enables graduates to function in the workplace with the knowledge necessary to deliver quality services. The workplace is a major arena for the delivery of services, including career advising, addictions counseling, health promotion, relocation assistance, and child and elder care referral programs. In social service agencies, financial and business expertise combined with social work practice, knowledge, and experience is invaluable. The degrees complement each other and provide graduates with the combination of knowledge, experience, and values necessary in business and the human services system.
