School of BusinessMBA Program

The MSN/MBA

The Dual Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Business Administration degree is designed to prepare practicing nurses for high-level careers in management and administration. The program integrates the evidence-based and practice-oriented MSN curriculum with the four cornerstones of the MBA curriculum: 1) leadership, 2) innovation, 3) global awareness and 4) ethical responsibility. This program requires a 10-day International Experience to be completed prior to graduation. Students will complete a total of 60 semester hours over three years attending part-time.

Admission into the MSN/MBA program requires acceptance into both programs.
