Social Work MBA/MSW

School of Social Work

Program Description

The MBA/MSW program applies managerial and economic principles to social work practice and enables students to earn both a Master in Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Social Work (MSW). This collaborative program between the UB School of Management and the UB School of Social Work reduces the time and credits compared to completing the programs separately. The MBA/MSW program offers both traditional and advanced standing tracks. Both MBA/MSW course of study options are full-time and on-campus only and incorporate our signature trauma-informed and human rights perspectives.
