2017-2018 Graduate Academic Catalog

Master of Science in Management (33 credits)

The Lesley Master of Management program is designed to inspire and challenge the next generation of decision-makers. You will enhance your career opportunities through building a comprehensive skill set to improve your critical thinking and doing.

Sifting through what information is salient and how it helps explicate problem solving is the core of the learning experience. The Lesley MSM will build two essential skills:

  • To think creatively and rigorously when approaching a web of problems or opportunities.
  • To lead and execute thoughtfully in fast-moving markets and complex organizations.

The Lesley MSM reflects the velocity of how “good” organizations become “great” organizations and how “great” organizations execute in the 21st Century.  The Lesley University MSM graduate will identify opportunities, leverage customer data and insights to maximize the organizations assets and execute swiftly. That is how the Lesley MSM is designed: a totally online curriculum that is a blend of theory and practice. Our competitive difference is the “Ripped from the headlines” multidimensional approach to management learning: these are living case studies, reflecting the realities of managing today. Each day a leader is either awash in information or operating blind of insights.
