University rank #301 (ARWU) Troy, NY, United States
One of the most critical questions facing modern organizations is how to bridge the communication gap between technically trained people on one side and business decision makers on the other.


Through courses that cover both sides of this divide—from business analytics and finance to talent management and operations strategy—the M.S. in Management program at the Lally School will prepare you for a transformative career at this critical intersection.

The M.S. in Management, ranked #5 in the United States by the TFE Times’ 2016 Master of Management Rankings, is directed for students who have an undergraduate degree in business and want to increase the depth of their understanding of one or more functional areas. The program features intensive study for students from educational backgrounds other than business who need foundational courses to enrich their understanding of the fundamentals of business.

The program is designed for recent graduates and working professionals who want to be able to enter or re-enter the job market with sufficient knowledge of one or more functions to be considered a specialist.

This one year, 30-credit program's specific requirements are developed for an individual student or a specialized audience.
