Our 10-month Master of Science in Management degree program is designed specifically for non-business majors (business minors may apply) who want to excel in today’s marketplace. As one of the most innovative programs in graduate business education, our program builds on the skills and knowledge gained in your undergraduate studies preparing you for a broad range of fields and careers.


Highlights include:

  • A hands-on learning environment with small classes and a 10:1 student: faculty ratio

  • Speaker series and networking opportunities that connect you with innovators and industry thought-leaders

The Masters in Management program starts in July with a five-week module to prepare you for graduate-level business courses.
