Develop business managers and leaders with requisite business knowledge and skills to ensure the strategic sustainment and growth of national and global organizations and enterprises.
The online MS in Business Management and Leadership provides a broad business education that focuses on the fundamentals of business management and critical leadership skills, and is immediately relevant to today’s business challenges and changing climate. It consists of seven courses in core business areas such as management, economics, and business law and ethics; two electives in emerging areas such as global entrepreneurship, managing diversity in the global environment, and new media and electronic commerce; and one capstone course that synthesizes all of the knowledge gained throughout the program.
Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, with a GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Applicants are required to write a personal statement, upload a resume, and provide two letters of recommendation which speaks to their academic and professional abilities. An individual interview may be necessary.
Transcripts from all institutions attended, both undergraduate and graduate, must be submitted. Work experience relevant to graduate study is strongly preferred.
Students may need to take up to three (3) prerequisite courses in order to be ready for graduate level work. These are undergraduate courses in financial accounting, statistics, micro- or macroeconomics, and computer applications. Courses that fulfill the prerequisites must have been completed with an earned grade of C or better. Some of the core courses are without prerequisites and can be taken as early as the first semester in parallel with these undergraduate courses if required.
