MSM (formerly known as the Master of Science in Business) graduated its first class of 28 students in May 2014. The 10-month program, intended for non-business majors with less than two years of work experience, bridges a student’s undergraduate work with its application in a business context by providing fundamental business knowledge and skills. In addition to core business courses such as accounting, finance, business ethics, marketing and management, students also gain career development skills and have the opportunity for international study in China as well as an externship with a partnering company.
