Learn the Language of Business

The Integrated Business track in the Master of Science in Management program provides you with a wide range of skills that are applicable across industries and organizations — whether you work for a large or small, for-profit or nonprofit. Here, you’ll get an introduction to critical, in-demand business processes and develop the hands-on knowledge that top employers are looking for.

Throughout your coursework, explore topics such as data analysis, human resources management, project management, and sales. Additionally, learn from our renowned faculty who bring years of experience to the classroom about imperative business skills such as conflict resolution, negotiation, ethics, data-driven decision making, teamwork, and oral presentation. Your professors will serve as facilitators, consultants, coaches and mentors. This active-learning approach will help you become a well-rounded multi-disciplinarian who thrives in environments that require you to take on multiple roles and responsibilities.

This is a full-time, lock-step, one-year program offered on the main campus. Due to the program’s limited class size, you’ll have the same cohort throughout your studies. This cohort format also provides a culture of networking, collaboration and teamwork that goes far beyond the classroom. Upon graduation, you’ll have a greater understanding of business and the strong financial, analytic and communication skills that it takes to succeed. Apply your learned experiences to your current job or start your path in a new career.
