The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree offered through the Heider College of Business paired with the Master of Science in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (MS-NCR) degree offered through the Graduate School prepares students with the ability to balance the needs of diverse groups within ever changing environments by increasing collaborative problem-solving skills and developing an understanding of complexity theory allowing for greater comfort with ambiguity and the emergence of conflict. The increased understanding of the dynamics of conflict and conflict management leads to a myriad of professional opportunities. The next generation of leaders will be working with and within our institutions to improve how we work together. They will become the conduits through which future models for collaborative organizations emerge. The rigorous academic curriculum integrates substantial practical experience in business and negotiation to ensure your success in tomorrow's workplace.
