The MBA/MSW (with Dominican University’s Graduate School of Social Work) prepares you in both social work and business practices for leadership in nonprofit, for-profit, or government agencies.

Dominican University recognizes that an individual who possess the skills and knowledge of both a social worker and a business professional is exceptionally well prepared to lead an organization, whether it is non-profit, for-profit or governmental. To accommodate students who want to attain this level of professional preparation, the University’s Graduate School of Social Work and its Brennan School of Business have developed a dual degree program that allows students to complete both an MSW and MBA in a shortened period of time.

Degree Requirements

Students must satisfy the requirements of both the MBA degree and the MSW degree.

Students in the dual degree program will complete SWK 524 - Social Work as Leadership for a Global Society , in place of  MGMT 602 - Leading People and Organizations . Reciprocally, the School of Social Work will accept 6 semester hours taken from courses within the MBA program as electives in the MSSW.

All requirements for the dual degree program must be completed within six years.
