MBA/MA in Communication Studies

The School of Communication Studies and College of Business Administration offer you the opportunity to obtain two degrees at once: a Master of Arts in Communication Studies (MA) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA).

This unique dual-degree program is particularly attractive for managers, professionals and Bachelor of Arts students looking to enhance their communication skills to influence business in emerging global markets, while also developing skills to augment their own professional careers.

The dual degree integrates knowledge of economic and business development practices that impact our interconnected global business world. Coursework includes:

  • Communication theory and skills
  • Media and information dissemination and processes
  • Business fundamentals
  • Entrepreneurial thinking
  • Team-building skills

To apply, you only need to complete one set of application materials. Each program makes an independent admission decision on your same application. Admission is based on grades, GRE or GMAT, references, an admissions essay and professional experience.

*You must also fulfill a Global Experience requirement, which can be a study abroad course or an internship with global reach.
