The 10 month, M.S. in Management program includes 33 credit hours of graduate courses and two foundation courses (taken in the proceeding summer). Business core and concentration coursework start in the fall and are completed concurrently. Selected concentrations are identified at admission, as almost half of the coursework will focus on your specific professional goals. Students in each concentration take an identical core of six graduate business courses. Students are provided a diverse, enriched classroom experience by working alongside MBA students.
