Kick Start Your Career in Business

The Master of Science in Management is a catalyst to a professional career for students with little to no work experience. By combining the foundations of business with practical training and industry connections, the MS in Management prepares students for careers in a broad range of industries or fields.

This one-year, 30-credit program includes core business courses that are aligned to the foundational MBA curriculum. Students complete elective credits that reflect their business interests and a three-credit Experienced-Based Learning course.

Master of Science in Management students are able to select electives from the full Katz master’s course catalog.

Today, I seek out classes and opportunities (like the Super Analytics Challenge) to learn and grow in this new area. I feel empowered and proud in a way I wouldn’t have thought possible a few years ago.

 I did not come from a business background, so this master’s degree is a way to enter the industry and show employers I have the necessary skill set to succeed at my job. One of the classes I find the most beneficial is Financial Accounting – it is not the most exciting topic, but it is a necessary skill for every businessperson.
