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.  You will select six-nine credits (depending on the need for A500) from the approved list of HR electives. Topics include but are not limited to Human Resources Management, Strategic Staffing, Industrial and Labor Relations and Performance Management.
  • General Management - Students in this track take courses in international management, operations and project management, strategy, analytics, human resources, and marketing.  You will select six-nine credits (depending on the need for A500) from the approved list of General Management electives.
