The MASTER OF SCIENCE IN MANAGEMENT
While the current MSM program engages students with real-world experience in a concise, one-year accelerated schedule of courses, the newly-envisioned MSM format at Faulkner is designed around a two-year time frame for professionals who choose to complete this graduate degree at a normal rather than an accelerated pace, allowing such enhancements as face-to-face instruction in a residential environment and professional growth through internship opportunities.
Program Design & Structure
This graduate program of study is delivered at a pace that allows students to maintain full-time employment or equally demanding internships while benefiting from a significant, multi-faceted learning experience. The guided, managed internship allows students to bring their array of skills and learning to real-world situations in business.
