This one-year Management MSc program from Arizona State University is designed to develop critical-thinking skills as applied to fundamental business procedures and processes, as well as leadership skills. It is also designed to bridge the gap between academic preparation and real-world business applications.

Designed for graduates of nonbusiness programs with fewer than two years of work experience, students will have the capability and motivation to rapidly progress in any profession where business plays an important role. The management program differs substantially from a traditional MBA program in that no work experience is required for admission and the coursework is completed in one year, giving a broad overview of the essentials of managerial decision-making.

Three distinct components of the Master of Science program in management prepare students to immediately add value and lead in all types of business environments:

  • core business courses that deliver necessary business skills through integrative cases, project-based learning and teamwork
  • leadership courses that develop understanding of strategic vision, instituting change, information systems, and the role and importance of sustainability
  • a culminating experience that bridges the gap between academic learning and real-world business application

Career Opportunities

The Master of Science in management includes the essential academic preparation for students who are interested in pursuing professional careers in diverse roles and industries, focusing on practical, universal business knowledge.
