USF’s Master of Science in Management program empowers business professions to take their careers to a new level. The MSM emphasizes:

  • critical thinking,
  • communication,
  • managerial use of information,
  • supervisory skills, and
  • a focus on the human side of management.

Students with or without undergraduate degrees in business gain useful skills in planning, team building, written and verbal communication, the use of technology to solve business problems and leading with integrity and a sense of ethics.

Practical for working professionals

USF provides quality educational programs with immediate real-world application while fitting into the busy lives of adult learners. MSM students can complete their program on-site or online at their own pace while working. Courses run three semesters each year (fall, spring, summer) and a student may enter the program during any semester. The MSM can be completed in as few as 15 months, and credit can be earned for on-the-job projects.

Expert instruction and collaboration

Faculty in the MSM program has academic credentials and real-world experience. Instructors bring their experiences to the classroom to provide students with immediate, practical application. Students often learn from each other, too, as they bring diverse perspectives to the classroom. USF’s average class size is between 15-20 students, creating an exciting interactive learning environment.
