Management, M.S.

The Master of Science in Management is oriented toward students who wish to advance their careers in business. For qualified incoming USJ undergraduates, the fifth-year M.S. in Management is tuition-free.

The program is also designed to serve working professionals who would like to enhance their skills through the completion of an advanced degree on a part-time or full-time basis.

Managers today are under constant scrutiny to justify projects and programs, to develop and use new technology, to change and transform, to behave in an ethical manner and above all, to develop sound financial and strategic approaches to markets while providing a fair and equitable wage to employees and an adequate profit for shareholders. This program culminates with a capstone course, MGMT 515 - Strategic Management , which emphasizes the skills and behaviors that enable a manager to engage in such activities as strategic planning, policy development and outcomes assessment.
