Masters in Management Curriculum

The practical business knowledge you learn in Masters in Management courses combined with the specialized skills earned in your undergraduate degree program give you a multi-disciplinary mindset and a well-rounded background that broadens your scope of potential job opportunities. That's what attracted budding photographer Ian Mostrom to the program.

In addition to functional business principles, our 11-month MS Management courses emphasize leadership, teamwork, analytical decision making, global understanding, and ethics and social responsibility.
