MS in Management

At some point in their careers, successful professionals are faced with the prospect of moving into managerial positions as the next logical step in their career progressions.   The MSM program was designed to facilitate this transition.  It is more focused than is our MBA curriculum through a stronger emphasis on mastery of a clearly defined specialization area.

The MSM is best suited for people with who wish to have more influence in their organizations by moving into managerial positions, but who also desire to retain their allegiance to an area of technical expertise, such as MIS.

What are the admissions requirements?

Basic Requirements

Applicants to the Master of Science in Management are required to have earned a bachelor's degree or the equivalent and to acheive an acceptable score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Foreign students whose native language is not English are required to take the TOEFL.exam.

A Word about the Undergraduate Degree

Applicants to the MSM program come from varied backgrounds. Many hold undergraduate degrees in management or in technical areas such as computer science or engineering while others have degrees in the liberal arts or basic science.

In evaluating applicants to the program, we focus primarily on academic performance at the undergraduate level with less emphasis placed on the discipline in which the degree was earned.

The GMAT

Applicants to the MSM who do not hold an advanced degree (master's or doctorate in any field) from a US or Canada-based accredited program are required to take the GMAT.

You can learn more about the GMAT at www.mba.com and www.ets.org.

Supplemental Criteria

Supplemental criteria are optional, but if provided, they are used in admissions decisions. These criteria include up to three letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and an applicant's years and quality of work experience.
