The intent of the Master of Science Degree in Management and Leadership is to provide graduate level instruction, which will enhance the management, leadership and decision-making abilities of the program's graduates, and prepare them for the dynamic, technology-driven work force they will encounter in both private industry and the public sector.

The Master of Science Degree in Management and Leadership offers graduate level instruction based in theory while providing opportunities to apply competencies to practical settings.

This program will enhance the management skills and decision-making abilities of the participants in the program at a cost commensurate with graduate level public education, and significantly lower on a cost-per-credit basis than private graduate level education.

The program is committed to developing competent managers and leaders capable of excelling in the constantly changing business environment that surrounds today's private marketplace and public sector.
