7.4.9 CURRICULUM IN MANAGEMENT

The MA in management is a 30-credit-hour degree program. Information on admission to this concentration is in the
Admission Criteria section of this catalog.

 

Each student who completes the master's program is expected to have a basic knowledge of the concepts, processes, and practices associated with the management of organizations. For someone with a non-business undergraduate degree and no work experience, this would include microeconomics, principles of accounting, production, management, and finance—or having a minor in business.

 

Global Business Management. The online Master of Arts in Management, with a concentration in Global Business Management, offers students the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to be successful in a global business environment. Students in this program will learn the complexities of managing businesses in a global arena, including the challenge of managing in a culturally diverse environment. Graduates of this program will understand the degree to which globalization has changed the way management is practiced in today’s society. In addition, graduates will have a broad knowledge of subjects that are key to effective global management, including but not limited to; managerial economics, managerial finance, accounting for global management, economics for global management, international marketing, global leadership and ethics, managerial statistics, and global business.

 

This flexible, online program is designed for supervisors, administrators, coordinators, managers, military personnel, and others who seek to advance their awareness of the impact of global issues in the workplace or who have developed the need for more advanced management skills in their current positions. The program is designed for students who do not have substantial prior education in business. All courses are offered online. The program consists of 30 hours of coursework, which students can complete in 18-24 months. A thesis is not required.

 

Details about program requirements are available on the Manderson Graduate School of Business website.
