Educational Leadership, M.A. and Business Administration, M.B.A. Dual Degree
Graduates of the dual degree program earn both a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and a Master of Business Administration (M.A./MBA). The program provides an awareness of the functional relationships between the educational system, business and administrative organizations. The increasing complexity of both educational organizations and non-profit institutions makes understanding business concepts important for students considering careers as administrators in educational institutions.
This program includes a study abroad component in which students study foreign-based business cases, visit local businesses and attend guest lectures. Scheduled between the fall and spring semesters, this seven-day trip provides students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on international business experience.
