Why M. S. in Management?

The market for graduate business education is changing. Applicants are younger and demand more specialized training. Elon’s M.S. in Management program is specifically designed to meet those changes. Unlike MBA programs, which traditionally require several years of work experience, we seek applicants right out of their undergraduate programs. Then, we combine a core of business essentials with high demand concentrations in organizational analytics and corporate communications. The Elon M.S. in Management program provides highly desired skills that open doors of employment opportunity and give our graduates tremendous flexibility in their careers.
