International Management, MS
Students in the MSIM program take a set of core courses and then choose from a variety of elective courses to customize their experiences. These electives are from different fields in the College of Management (finance, management and marketing) and, potentially, from other colleges (economics, political science, international relations, and public policy).
Each year, the College of Management runs trips abroad to business hubs such as India and China, allowing students to earn course credit while gaining valuable international management experience. The richness and diversity of the program enable students to tailor their elective coursework to their own interests. The comprehensive foundation in team management and strategy provides students with the skills in demand by their prospective employers upon graduation.
Given the overarching management perspective of the program, students from both business and non-business backgrounds will find it a valuable degree for career advancement. A balance between quantitative and qualitative courses provides students with a substantial understanding of how to manage international business.
The full MSIM program consists of 13 courses (39 credits). Students with relevant coursework may be able to waive some core business courses.
The program can be completed full-time or part-time, with classes that meet primarily in the evenings, late afternoons, weekends and online. Scheduling is highly flexible, with most classes meeting once per week.
