Masters in Management Rankings

Masters in Management Rankings

The best Masters in Management degree programs do not necessarily equate with the best business schools or the best MBA programs. Graduate programs in management were at one time the academic alternative to the MBA: students with the Master of Management went on to doctoral studies or teaching, while MBA graduates moved into the business world. Today that is not the case; the Master of Management or Master of Science in Management has become a terminal degree, one that meets the needs of individuals who are interested in the leadership role of business administration rather than the internal machinations. Many graduate programs in management today offer similar areas of concentration to those found in a MBA program; although most schools don't require a background in business as MBA programs might, there are some that treat the MOM as a degree for working professionals to further their skills. Our collection of schools presented here has been culled from the top graduate business schools as ranked by US News and World Report, selecting those that have quality graduate programs in management.

  1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers a Master of Science in Management Studies that is designed for a specific audience. It is an advanced degree meant for students who have already earned a business degree but done so in a non-U.S. business school. The program allows for great flexibility in curriculum development, providing students the opportunity to devise an academic track and to select classes from other MIT departments as well as from Harvard University. There are ten areas of concentration organized into three categories, which are Behavioral & Policy Sciences; Economics, Finance & Accounting; and Management Science.
  2. New York University School of Continuing & Professional Studies has a Master of Science in Management & Systems that is a hybrid degree focusing on a combination of traditional business training side by side with classes on the latest in business information technology. The exercises in connecting business strategy with technology are carried out using case studies that are global in scope. There are four areas of concentration for this degree. Two are in information technology: Database Technologies and Systems Management. There are also two business oriented options: Strategy & Leadership, and Enterprise Risk Management
  3. Duke University has developed the Master of Management Studies as an accelerated option for students who are not interested in pursuing an MBA. This degree requires ten months to complete, providing the essential management skills to move into the workforce without plowing through the high-pressure curriculum of a Masters in Business Administration. The curriculum is organized into five six week terms, with classes meeting twice a week for 135 minutes. The curriculum covers the financial side of business thoroughly, with courses in Financial Accounting, Quantitative Business Analysis, Business Economics, Foundations of Capital Markets, and Corporate Finance.
  4. University of Wisconsin Green Bay is a ten course, thirty credit program that is designed for the working professional. It can be completed in two to three years on a part time basis without total disruption of your professional and personal life. Classes include Organizational Theory & Behavior, Team Dynamics & Problem Solving, International Management, Organizational Change & Innovation, and Managerial Statistics. There are also courses that relate to personnel management in conflict situations and with regard to change management.
  5. Purdue University offers a MBA in Global Management with some acutely focused classes for the specialization. Students have elective options that include International Financial Management, International Operations Management, Developing a Global Business Strategy, and International Human Resource Management. There is a study abroad component built into the program as an elective, which involves practicum opportunities in Madrid, Paris, India, China, or Chile.
