Overview


The Masters of Science in Management degree provides students with management knowledge that can be applied as an emerging leader in any career, in any sector-private, public, or non-profit.

Students will augment educational or work experience with a solid foundation of graduate management education and a broad understanding of management’s applications. Regardless of their undergraduate background, students will learn how to work with diverse stakeholders in key areas of an organization:

  • Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Information technology
  • Human resources

Most importantly, the MSM will help develop the leadership and decision-making skills students need to effect community and organizational change.
