Master of Science in Management

Minot State University’s MSM degree emphasizes leading-edge management principles and strategies for success in modern organizations. The program prepares working professionals to assume greater management responsibilities and scholars to continue management studies at the doctoral level.
In addition to core management courses, students are exposed to best practices in managerial communication, strategic marketing, human resources, financial management, accounting, statistics, and management information systems.

The Master of Science in Management is a research-oriented degree. Students typically specialize in a specific area of management, but are exposed to all key aspects of business management. The MSM may lead to advanced study.
