Master in Management

The Master's in Management (MiM) program emphasizes the quantitative and qualitative aspects of business practice and allows students to explore these issues in depth in a given functional area. The curriculum includes a set of business-fundamental courses (e.g., financial accounting, finance, organizations and human capital, marketing, decision making and data analysis, business ethics and public policy, and strategic management) that incorporate the application of concepts and analytic tools to solve current management problems. Teamwork and communication skills are taught through team projects with an emphasis on private and public sector issues. The curriculum also includes a set of focused functional-area specific courses (through one of our various certificate programs) that provide students with key knowledge, skills, and abilities in a specific discipline or functional area of business.
