The BSBA /MS (NCR) 5 year program provides an efficient progression to complete the Human Resources track within the BSBA in Management and the MS in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution in 5 years. Students will complete both degrees at the completion of the 5th year of study through completion of 6-9 credit hours of graduate level courses in the senior year of their undergraduate program.  The program offers an excellent opportunity for students to increase their professional capacity by entering the workforce with substantial expertise preparing them with skills to work constructively with the conflict dynamics that influence organizational performance.
