Graduate enrollment has increased for the fourth semester in a row on the Kent campus with an 8.7 percent jump this fall.

Louise Ditchey, academic program director for the Graduate School of Management, attributes part of the College of Business Administration’s growth to its dual degree programs, which partners students with other disciplines to earn two master’s degrees at once.

“When all those students in those partnerships programs added to our already growing group, it made for such a large increase,” Ditchey said.

Nearly all the colleges experienced growth, with three increasing by double-digit percentages.
