Course Topics

The M.A. in Management program consists of ten 3-credit courses, one 3-credit elective and a 3-credit capstone. The courses cover a wide range of topics. Our goal is to prepare you to effectively handle the many real-life issues managers face daily.

Beyond the required Management Principles (GM600) and Leadership and Strategic Management (GM680), you’ll be taking coursework focused on these areas critical to successfully running a business and empowering employees:

  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Project Management
  • Communication Skills
  • Human Resources
  • Legal Issues
  • Ethics

Soaking in the content of these courses often leads students to discover new career options and natural strengths they hadn’t yet considered. The required three credits of electives allows you freedom to take course work specific to your individual career goals.

You’ll graduate confident to step into even higher levels of leadership than you have today.
