Deans Desk Fall 2017

This edition of the Barney Update focuses on our growing portfolio of graduate programs. 

2017 saw the launch of our new Master of Science of Management (MSM) program.  The MSM degree is designed for working professionals with no prior business education. Students learn the foundations of business along with the management skills necessary to manage people and processes in today’s increasingly dynamic and turbulent world.  The MSM degree is delivered 100% online.

The MSM joins our legacy Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Science of Accounting and Taxation (MSAT) degrees.  Both the MBA and MSAT are delivered by our outstanding faculty both on campus and online, providing maximum flexibility for our students.  Both programs provide students the opportunity to deep-dive into the professional areas that interest them most.  MSAT students can select either Tax or Assurance as their area of specialization.  MBA students have seven concentrations from which to choose:

  • Business Analytics
  • International Business
  • Project Management 
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Supply Chain Management

As described in the following pages, we are immensely proud of our graduate programs’ recent rankings and recognitions. 

Yet our greatest pride comes from the accomplishments of our graduates.  In this edition we feature four MBA and MSAT alums whose careers have benefitted from the investments they made in their educations.

We look forward to the future achievements of the 400+ current students pursuing their master degrees with us.

Best Regards, 

Martin S. Roth

Dean and Professor of Management & Marketing
