Master of Management

The Graduate Program in Management is a one-year, three-term Master’s program that provides a comprehensive understanding of management knowledge to students with non-business backgrounds.

The curriculum is designed to be highly experiential, addressing the skills necessary for success in organizations, such as communication, problem solving, and working in diverse, team-based environments. Students develop an understanding of how the major disciplines of management intersect, understand how to manage the obligation to act in a socially and ethically responsible manner, and apply quantitative and qualitative methods to solve management problems. In the final semester, students have an opportunity to apply these skills to a real organization through their participation in the culminating “Enterprise Consulting Project.” During the project, students working in teams use the management foundations studied in the first two terms of the Master of Management program to develop actionable recommendations for the client organization.

The Graduate Program in Management commences in September each year. Please visit for more information.
