Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The Master of Science in Management is a 30 credit program designed to be completed in two terms, on a full-time basis. The curriculum includes 19.5 credits of core business management courses that overlap with the Katz MBA curriculum. Students also choose 10.5 credits of electives from areas of study in finance, management of information systems, marketing, organizational behavior, human resource management, and entrepreneurship.

Students enrolled in this program must complete the appropriate number of prerequisite, required, and elective courses according to program requirements, and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0.


Students will choose 7.5 credits that reflect their business discipline interest, as well as a 3.0 credit Experienced Based Learning course that complements their elective choices as a “business block”. Although MSM students may select electives from the full Katz Masters course catalog to build their own business focus, academic advisors will provide students with “blocks” (or tracks) of suggested electives that are in-demand by employers and of interest to today’s students.  Students will be encouraged to consider selecting electives as a “business block” in order to develop specific skills, however, this will not be a requirement.
