The Integrated Business track in the Master of Science in Management (MSM/IB) provides students who have a recent, non-business undergraduate degree and limited professional work experience with an introduction to critical, in-demand business processes and helps them develop a wide range of transferable skills that employers value highly. Skills learned in this degree program are applicable across industries and organizations whether they be large or small, for-profit or nonprofit.

This is a full-time, lock-step, one-year program offered on the main campus.

The 30-credit hour, a 10-course curriculum introduces students to business operations from a managerial perspective and to a variety of important business processes that are useful across industries and job titles, including data analysis, human resources management, project management, and sales. In addition, a wide variety of important transferable skills are emphasized, including conflict resolution, critical thinking, data-driven decision making, ethics, leadership, negotiation, oral presentation, teamwork, and written communication. The fully face-to-face program uses a unique flipped-classroom design, which involves providing access to students to online course materials prior to in-class meetings during which students engage in team-based active learning that requires integrating the activities with course materials in practical ways. In this pedagogical model, the instructor serves as a facilitator, consultant, coach, and mentor to the team, rather than a talking head who lectures at the front of the room. The program is designed for recent graduates from non-business disciplines who wish to enter into a professional business career but who do not feel workplace ready. The program culminates in a business strategy class coupled with either an internship or a team-based applied field project.
