Michigan State Universitys newly designed Master of Science degree is built on the latest thinking in management, strategy and leadership. The curriculum incorporates useful and practical knowledge balanced across key components of leadership excellence: human resource management and development, team and organizational leadership, and strategic management.
This program was designed by top management researchers from the AACSB-accredited Broad College of Business who are dedicated to challenging students to develop forward-thinking solutions to some of the most important issues impacting organizations. Much of what is covered in the interactive classroom is based on timely and relevant frontline research findings, not the latest fad on the best sellers list. In fact, the Broad College Management Department faculty has been recognized for more than six years as the most productive researchers in top management journals.
Not an MBA
The MS in Management, Strategy and Leadership is designed for passionate, hardworking, team-oriented professionals looking to maximize their potential in managing people and leading organizations. Unlike an MBA, which usually provides broad-based business knowledge focusing specifically on the core business disciplines of accounting, marketing, finance and operations, this degree program hones in on the knowledge and skills necessary to lead and motivate people while developing big-picture strategies.
