MBA vs. MS: What's the difference?

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Leadership concentrates more on ethical decision-making and leading the organization as a whole. It also focuses more on technical business skills. The Master of Science (MS) in Leadership is a broad degree that focuses more on the people side of this concentration than the business side of leadership.
