One Night a Week at Locations Close to Home
Fine tune your leadership and decision-making skills with Keuka’s master’s in management. In less than two years, you’ll be prepared to take the next step in your career.
Whether you work in health care, manufacturing, retail, banking and financial services, education, law enforcement, food service, operations, research and development, or project management, you’ll learn the transferable skills needed to become a successful manager and to develop your personal leadership style.
Unlike a traditional MBA degree, which is geared toward people with technical backgrounds and heavily depends on accounting and math, Keuka’s master’s in management concentrates on the development of the individual within an organization. Core courses include organizational design and marketing, leadership development, strategic analysis, and ethics.
Throughout your program, you’ll apply class concepts directly to the workplace and begin to examine critical issues within your organization.
The program culminates with an Action Research Project (ARP), a three-part course where students will observe a workplace issue and then develop a solution to put into practice. The ARP helps you learn about project management and helps build value for your employer.
The M.S. in Management curriculum consists of 13 courses and 39 credit hours. For planning purposes, classes meet one night each week for four hours. Students spend additional time outside of class to complete readings, assignments, case studies, online discussions, and group work.
