The Master of Science in Management program focuses on the practice of management. It is grounded in a variety of analytic and administrative approaches drawn from the fields of management, economics, applied psychology, and quantitative methods. While discipline knowledge in these areas is necessary, it is by no means sufficient to achieve business success. Managers today need to be able to think conceptually and exhibit critical thinking skills enabling sound judgement and decision making. Those are the hallmarks of successful, professional management practitioners which this program aims to produce.
The unique curriculum teaches current and emerging leadership theories and skills to enable organizational innovation in complex work environments. Learn how economics, applied psychology and quantitative methods can be used to solve today’s leadership and managerial challenges like the growing need for experienced talent and new modes of internal communication.
Work with faculty members who were industry leaders at Fortune 500 companies and government agencies and daily practitioners of the skills they teach. This program offers a unique blend of small class sizes, intense collaboration and global professional networking opportunities. Graduates leave Stevens with better communications, interpersonal and team skills to plan, implement, and manage leading-edge practices in management.
