Master's Degree in Management

Overview

The Master of Science in Management (MSM) program is designed to meet the operational and leadership needs of managers and supervisors in public, private, and not-for-profit industries.

A goal of this program is to enable students to diagnose multiple organizational circumstances, determine and evaluate options, and implement and evaluate a plan of action. This concentration will benefit individuals, practitioners, consultants, and advisors who are, or want to become, responsible for administrating for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.

This dynamic program is built around flexible online, blended, and in-residence classes to help students complete their degree while balancing personal and professional demands.
