Master of Science in Management

Master of Science in Management (M.S.M.)

The Master of Science in Management (M.S.M.) degree at Warner University is a practical-based graduate program designed to integrate current business and management topics in today’s society. The M.S.M. program is a 36-credit-hour graduate degree program (12 courses of study) designed for working professionals seeking additional knowledge beyond the bachelor’s level of study.

The M.S.M. degree places emphasis on managerial skills in order to prepare students for managerial and leadership roles in today’s workforce. The program can be completed in 24 months of consecutive study and is offered entirely online. Each course is eight weeks in length.

Students with various educational and professional backgrounds will find the M.S.M. program both intriguing and challenging. The M.S.M. will require students to study at a level beyond their undergraduate curriculum to extend their knowledge, intellectual, and professional maturity. Students will be required to analyze, explore, question, reconsider, and synthesize old and new knowledge and skills so that the graduate will have gained sufficient depth of education, specialized skills, and a sense of creative independence to contribute and provide leadership in the business profession.

A version of this degree, which includes a concentration in Criminal Justice Leadership is also available.

Program Mission and Outcomes

  3. Program graduates will compete favorably for employment and education with peers from other institutions.
