The Master in Management program is ideal for those who have:

The Master in Management program is designed for students without prior business education. Applicants with a major, minor, or significant coursework in business will not be considered. Students enrolling in the program will be required to pass an Economics class and a Statistics class prior to matriculation. These can be taken any semester, including summer prior to the first day of the program.
