The Master of Science in Conflict Management teaches students tools that can help prevent conflict and effectively manage it once it arises.

These students take classes together from start to finish to create a unique and enriching learning environment. In 16 months, learn negotiation, conflict theory, mediation skills, peacebuilding, cross-cultural, and international conflict resolution.

MBS + MS in Conflict Management Dual Graduate Degree

Two Degrees. One-Of-A-Kind Program. Unlimited Opportunities

The MS in Conflict Management/Masters in Business Administration dual degree prepares students for competitive leadership and managerial positions in careers requiring extensive understanding and interaction with conflict management and business acumen. The students’ desire for this program comes from the extensive interaction between the two sectors in areas such as global project management, negotiations, and contracting. The programs are completed in 53 credit hours rather than the 72 hours that would be necessary if they degrees were pursued separately.


PhD in International Conflict Management

Brochure link:

The PhD in International Conflict Management in the School of Conflict Management, Peacebuilding and Development at Kennesaw State University (KSU) has students from around the world, creating a dynamic, yet intimate, educational environment. Doctoral students, after completing core courses, are given the flexibility to focus their studies in their desired areas. International Conflict Management is a field that currently has few opportunities for advanced education. KSU is a leading institution with one of the few independent schools of conflict and peacebuilding in the world.

Key global competencies:

  1. Intercultural and International Dynamics
  2. Development Theory and Practice
  3. Peacebuilding
  4. Conflict Management theory
