Program Description

The MSIPM Program is a cohort-based online Master’s degree program. The program builds on KSU’s strong tradition of, and longstanding commitment to, globally-focused education. The theoretically-grounded, empirically-focused, and policy-relevant curriculum equips graduates with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in today’s increasingly internationalized professional world.

The MSIPM program is a 30 semester-hour course of study. Students begin as a group in the fall semester of year one and complete the program in May of year two. Since courses are offered in a predetermined sequence, program time-to-completion is only 20 months.
