Overview

The Master of Science (MS) degree in Management & Leadership features a global focus designed to prepare professionals for executive leadership positions in business, military, government, and non-profit organizations.  This program deliberately gives less emphasis to the technical skills typically taught in most MBA programs in favor of higher-level, sophisticated diagnostic and practical skills commensurate with an organization-wide perspective that current and aspiring executives need in today’s diverse and hyper-connected world.

The curriculum focuses on building strong communication and negotiation proficiency, creativity and innovative problem-solving, the creation and maintenance of collaborative and productive teams, and the enactment and support of socially responsible behavior—all while emphasizing the balance between employee well-being, sustainability, and performance excellence.
