New Master of Science in Management Program Launched

Carlson_summerClark University’s Graduate School of Management (GSOM) is offering a new Master of Science in Management (MSM) program for early- and mid-career professionals ready to expand their leadership skills and gain an understanding of how management principles apply to today’s complex organizational issues.

The MS in Management degree is designed for emerging leaders from nearly any sector – public, private, or non-profit – and any industry. The program will integrate coursework, case studies, and projects around topics in accounting, marketing, information systems, and human resource management.

“The creation of the MSM program was driven by industry and market needs,” said GSOM Dean Catherine Usoff. “The curriculum was designed in response to what employers identified as the highest priority skills for individuals in mid-level jobs, such as critical thinking and communication. We’re excited to offer this relevant management degree program to aspiring leaders looking to advance in their career and transform their organizations.”

Full-time students can complete the degree in just one year, with part-time options also available, allowing students to take one or more courses and continue working while enrolled in the program. Evening, day, and accelerated classes are offered, and the Graduate School of Management now offers courses online.

MSM courses will be offered beginning in fall 2016 and applications are currently being accepted.

In addition to the new MSM, Clark’s GSOM offers a full-time and part-time MBA, a full-time and part-time Master of Science in Accounting, a Master of Science in Finance, as well as a number of dual-degrees.
