Master of Science in Management (MSM)

General

Program Description

The purpose of the Master of Science in Management program is to provide a specialized professional program for the student who wants to acquire proficiency in management skills, including decision making, which will enable the graduate to carry out responsibilities in both general and specialized managerial roles. Concentrations in Human Resource Management, Information Systems, Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness, International Management, and Healthcare Management further develop managerial problem-solving skills in specific areas of applied management. As a result of successfully completing the MSM program, graduates should improve their ability to apply problem-solving skills to operational and strategic planning processes and to use written and verbal communication skills effectively to communicate the results of their problem-solving analyses and recommendations.


Prerequisite Requirements


Candidates for admission must have a baccalaureate degree in any subject area from a regionally accredited college or university. The MSM degree program requires no prerequisite courses; however, MGT 6601, Advanced Concepts and Topics in Management, must be taken for graduate credit if the student does not have an undergraduate major in business. If the student has an undergraduate major in business, an elective course will be substituted.
