Program Description

The Master of Science in Management and Systems degree is designed to provide students with a solid foundation of business and technology management knowledge in the core curriculum. Students are required to select a concentration to ensure depth of knowledge in a content area that will be a differentiator in the workplace. The Strategy and Leadership concentration is intended for students interested in focusing on organizational leadership competencies. The Systems Management and Database Technologies concentrations both provide students with enhanced knowledge of a specific IT domain. The Enterprise Risk Management concentration bridges both management and IT areas, with a focus on managing risk in the financial services industry. A capstone course requirement completes the program of study.

Students may complete the Master of Science in Management and Systems online, on-site, or through a combination of these formats. With courses offered during the evening and on weekends, the degree may be completed in two years of full-time study or in up to five years of part-time study. This allows maximum flexibility for both busy senior managers and executives, as well as for recent college graduates who are just beginning their careers. The program combines rigorous course work with industry case studies and simulations to provide students with a variety of valuable learning opportunities and experiences.
