Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul is asking Kennesaw State University to establish a business master’s degree program in Sandy Springs, according to the city.

City spokesperson Dan Coffer said that Paul is “working on that KSU proposal for the city” and that he could not comment further.

KSU spokesperson Tammy DeMel declined comment on the proposal. “At this time, we are unable to provide any information,” she said.

Lever Stewart, the past president of the Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber of Commerce, said he is aware of the MBA proposal, but not directly involved in it. He noted that many cities smaller than Sandy Springs have such university programs.

KSU is a state university based in Kennesaw and operates a Marietta campus. Its departments include a business college.
