MS in Management

Management solutions to meaningful problems.

The so-called “new economy” has produced new industries, careers, and job opportunities, but it certainly has not resolved all the world’s problems. The challenges facing business and society remain complex—if anything, now more than ever.

Customers today seek a sense of purpose in their purchases with an intention that was rare in the marketplace 15 years ago. Employees today desire purpose in their work in a way that has redefined the career trajectories of millions of people. Corporate social responsibility is a big deal, and so is protecting the environment.

In short, business is being called upon more than ever to do good—and, in many places, it is, producing innovative solutions to tough social problems.

The Gabelli MS in Management (MSM) prepares and inspires students to rise to the challenges of this new business world. Grounded in fundamental business disciplines, this degree immerses students in the principles of civic-minded business, enabling them to contribute to their organizations, in their industries, and in the world.

This program is not just about conducting sustainable business that leads to sustainable living. It’s about cultivating smart, directed leaders who can encourage businesses worldwide to explore new management models.

Full-time and part-time options

The MSM has two schedule choices:

  • A one-year full-time program
  • A two-year part-time program, ideal for professionals who don’t want to leave their jobs while they pursue the degree

The Gabelli School edge

A focus on global sustainability and innovation defines a Gabelli School education. The MSM curriculum examines the full range of management topics through this lens, covering strategy, sustainability, organizational behavior, global business analysis, leadership, negotiation, operations, entrepreneurial thinking, decision-making, teamwork, and co-creation. This is where responsible business gets its start.

Ideal candidates

This program is ideal for:

  • Recent college graduates in the liberal arts, sciences, or engineering for whom business knowledge can provide a bridge to corporate, government, or nonprofit careers
  • Early-career professionals whose work and future leadership potential would benefit from a holistic view of business organizations and their role in serving employees, customers, and society at large
  • Individuals who are interested in developing, adopting, and refining responsible business practices
  • People who are motivated by social innovation: the process of developing products and services that generate profit and social benefit—especially for the underserved—at the same time
