The MS Management program prepares students for significant managerial responsibilities in the private and public sectors. Core course requirements provide students with an advanced understanding of how to manage interpersonal dynamics, effectively design organizations, implement planned change and organizational transformations and develop human resources.  Students build on this foundation with any four electives in MGMT, ENTP or INTB, or with the courses that comprise one of 12 career-focused specializations.

The specializations include: business strategy, change and innovation, communications management, enterprise technology management, entrepreneurship and innovation, human resources management, global management, leadership, strategic management, managing for sustainability, quantitative decision methods and sports and entertainment management.
