Master of Science in Management-Online Consortium

The Chancellors’ Master of Science in Management teaches you the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful manager: communication, team building, conflict resolution, and negotiation. You'll find it particularly appropriate if you have not taken management courses in the past but now manage, or plan to manage, a team.

There are no quantitative courses in this program. Instead, you study leadership, teams, change management, and ethics; and you gain next-level skills in critical thinking and performance improvement. 

There are two tracks to choose from:

  • Human Resources - Students in this track take courses in human resources and staff management
  • General Management - Students in this track take courses in international management, operations and project management, strategy, analytics, human resources, and marketing
