Our MBA/MSW program teaches students to apply managerial and economic principles to social work practice. It's how our graduates lead highly effective service agencies and create new programs and policies. This collaborative program between the School of Management and the School of Social Work leads to both an MBA and MSW and reduces the time and credits compared to completing the programs separately.
Building on previous course content, this course examines the concepts of resiliency and self-monitoring in the evaluation of strategies that are effective for renewing and sustaining interest in the profession. The opportunities and challenges of post-graduate social work practice and the importance of support from mentors and colleagues are explored. Students will identify how their own learning style informs the development of their professional identity. In particular they will focus on how their practice, professional identity and commitment to the profession can be sustained through life-long learning, use of supervision and self-care.
