The Master of Science in Management focuses on the concepts, principles, and issues experienced by managers in all types of organizations – commercial, governmental, educational, community, and nonprofit. The program combines a strong academic foundation with practical knowledge and skills in management.
The degree differs significantly from an M.B.A. Whereas the M.B.A. traditionally emphasizes coursework in the theoretical and functional areas of business, such as economics, marketing, accounting, and corporate finance, the M.S.M. focuses specifically on the discipline of management to help students enhance their ability to manage organizational resources more effectively. Because the degree provides a focus on management, it is of potential relevance to anyone who maintains, or is assuming, managerial responsibilities.
