Management Skills for Your Future
Whether you have an undergraduate degree in business, communications, biology or any other field, the Master of Science in Management (MSM) program was designed for you. Regardless of educational background, this degree track provides the information and hands-on teaching necessary to build strong managerial skills, providing students with limited work experience the opportunity to build their credentials and boost their talents, ultimately making them more marketable and valuable.
According to the Graduate Management Admission Council's 2012 Prospective Students Survey, 30 percent of prospective students applying to Master of Management programs were most likely to consider self-employment/entrepreneurial careers, while 12 percent were seeking to enhance their positions with current employers.
When it comes to switching career paths, 17 percent were looking to change industries and function, 10 percent were looking to change industries only and 15 percent were looking to change functions only.
MSM vs. MBA
In management, interpersonal communications, team building, leadership and problem solving abilities are among the most important skills you can acquire. Talented managers not only understand what’s best for their business, but also have a strong understanding of how to respectfully interact and motivate their team. The MSM program focuses on developing techniques to build these integral interpersonal skills as well as strategic problem solving solutions.
Contrarily, an MBA program is based on technical knowledge of current business practices. This field delves into more analytical and data-driven practices and is less focused on the interpersonal aspects of business.
