MBA/Master of Science in Foreign Service
The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and McDonough School of Business offer a full-time, three-year, program that leads to both MBA and Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) degrees. This dual program focuses on the global interdependence of business and government systems and is intended for students with strong interests in the relationship between foreign relations and global business.
Candidates seeking management positions within international and multi-national corporations, government agencies, international development institutions, economic development institutions, and banks should consider augmenting their graduate business studies with an MSFS degree.
