The aim of the program is to bridge a student’s undergraduate work with its application in a business context by providing fundamental business knowledge and skills, all within the ethics-based approach to business education as only Notre Dame can teach it.
The MSM program takes place over three semesters—summer, fall and spring—and provides students with a thorough grounding in business fundamentals, such as accounting, finance, business ethics, marketing and management principles as well as an optional international study trip to China.
In addition, the minimum 39 credit hours of coursework includes an integrative course that enables students to combine the knowledge and skills they gained through their undergraduate major with business fundamentals in a way that creates a unique personal brand.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
