Now business professionals can gain the leadership skills they need to move ahead in their careers and drive their organizations to success with the new Master of Science in Management, Strategy and Leadership from Michigan State University. Available exclusively online through MSU's Eli Broad College of Business, this newly designed degree teaches students how to become transformational leaders – from motivating individuals and mobilizing teams to making strategic decisions and implementing long-term plans. Enrollment begins October 1, 2013 and classes start January 6, 2014.
"Our internationally recognized faculty has designed this program to help students become more effective communicators, managers, leaders and decision-makers," said Dr. Robert Wiseman, the Eli Broad Legacy Fellow of Management. "Unlike an MBA, which focuses on core disciplines such as accounting, marketing, finance and operations, this degree hones in on the knowledge and skills necessary to lead and motivate people, improve a company's competitive position, and create and execute organizational change."
The Expertise of a U.S. News-Ranked Business School
At the Broad College of Business, faculty members are consistently recognized as the most productive researchers in top management journals. These leading-edge experts develop the strategies that drive real-world business practices. Ranked #2 in HR management by the Financial Times in 2012 and a top 25 business school by Forbes, the U.S. News & World Report-ranked Broad College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) – a prestigious accreditation held by less than five percent of the world's 13,000 business schools.
