Master of Science

US News and World Report - best graduate business program - 2023
How you benefit

The Chancellors’ Master of Science in Management teaches you the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful manager: communication, team building, conflict resolution, and negotiation. You'll find it particularly appropriate if you have not taken management courses in the past but now manage, or plan to manage, a team. 

What you study

There are no quantitative courses in this program. Rather, you study leadership, teams, change management, and ethics; and you gain next-level skills in critical thinking and performance improvement. 

You can also tailor your degree to your professional interests by choosing one of two tracks:

  • Human resources 
  • General management 

This program is taught by IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, and IU Southeast. It is 100 percent online (no synchronous or on-campus meetings), allowing for maximum flexibility.
