The Master of Business Administration/Master of Social Work dual degree program develops knowledge and skills in working with individuals, families and groups, as well as organizational dynamics, marketing, decision sciences, accounting and human relations. Students interested in working in the management of human services and not-for-profit organizations will develop knowledge of human resources, philanthropic and corporate social responsibility, organizational development and information management.
Prospective students must apply to both the Marshall School of Business and the USC School of Social Work.
The MBA/MSW degree program requires completion of a total of 96 units (48 in the Marshall School of Business and 48 in the School of Social Work).
Course requirements in the Marshall School of Business include all courses required for an MBA program and graduate business electives sufficient to bring the total units completed in the Marshall School of Business to at least 48. Dual degree program students may not count courses taken outside the Marshall School of Business toward the 48 units. See the School of Social Work section for Social Work (MSW) course requirements.
The MBA and the MSW degrees are awarded simultaneously upon completion of all program requirements.
