Master of Science in Management

The Walsh College Master of Science in Management (MSM) program provides you with the modern business principles and advanced managerial skills needed to lead effectively.  The core of the MSM incorporates high-level curriculum, in primary business concepts, taught by faculty who are skilled practitioners in their fields. Students must choose from one of three concentration areas: Human Resources, International Business, or Strategy.

The MSM program consists of 12 courses for 36 semester credit hours.  Courses are offered in a hybrid format, combining in-person classroom instruction with online learning. Select courses will require on-campus attendance while others will be available entirely online. Most on-ground courses will be taught in a 2+2 format, with two hours of on-campus instruction and the equivalent of two hours of online instruction weekly.

MSM graduates work in a variety of industries including human resources, health care, defense, and education. The opportunities for employment vary significantly. The Walsh MSM delivers the skills necessary for students to move forward in their careers whether it’s a promotion, a new job, or a total career change.

Management analysts can expect an average starting salary ranging from $55,600 to $64,000, according to an April 2014 survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

Graduate Program Launch: All MSM students will participate in a one-day, on-campus orientation program before their classes begin. There will be an overview of your program, a communications assessment, a review of student services, team building and networking opportunities. (0 cr; REQUIRED). On campus. Saturday orientation session.
