Exact solutions of nonlinear evolution equations (NLEEs) are very crucial to realize the obscurity of many physical phenomena in mathematical science. The modified simple equation (MSE) method is especially effective and highly proficient mathematical instrument to obtaining exact traveling wave solutions to NLEEs arising in science, engineering and mathematical physics. Though the modified simple equation method effectively provides exact traveling wave solutions to nonlinear evolution equations for balance number less or equal 2 but the method did not applied to solve if the balance number is greater than 2. In this article, the MSE method is executed to construct exact traveling wave solutions of nonlinear evolution equations namely Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation with balance number equal to 3. The obtained solutions are expressed in terms of exponential and trigonometric functions including solitary and periodic solutions. Moreover the procedure of this method reduces huge volume of calculations.
