The most important job of a manager is getting the best out of your employees. Our Master's in Management program focuses on teaching students essential behavioral management skills necessary to do this. In particular, this program focuses on successfully guiding organizational change from within.
Founded in 1986, the program has produced more than 600 graduates who have taken roles as corporate leaders and managers in private corporations, nonprofits, healthcare, government, education, engineering and small business entrepreneurship.
Graduates of this program are skilled at identifying and analyzing organizational problems, developing innovative solutions, and making correct, ethical decisions at critical times. The program's primary areas of study include:
We offer a variety of capstone and final project options, providing each student the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in the program in a way that fits with their strengths. Our students can chose to attend a global capstone seminar, compose an academic thesis or complete a faculty-directed project.
The Management program is offered at our main campus in Duluth. Coursework is completed through a combination of accelerated evening classes with a few online courses. Students may start the program in the fall or spring.
We know the value that a robust learning community provides to the educational experience, so we strive to obtain an optimal-sized learning community of 20 students per start. If we are not able to reach our ideal number of students, the program start may be delayed.
