  • Master of Science in Management

    LEAD Program Only  

    The Master of Science degree in Management is designed to serve those students interested in strengthening their capacity to effectively and ethically manage others in an organizational context. It provides students depth in management content areas including strategy, leadership, performance management, creativity and innovation, human resource management and change management. While still touching on critical business knowledge areas including economics, accounting, finance, information technology and business ethics, the Master of Science degree in Management offers greater depth in the knowledge and skills important to those who wish to effectively manage others in ways that further an organization's values and strategies.
