A Foundational Business Education.
The Master of Science in Management (MSM) at Piedmont University provides foundational business knowledge with a focus on management that is offered to students with bachelor’s degrees in any major. Students learn business fundamentals, contemporary best practices, and how to identify and address complex business challenges—fostering strategic thinking, leadership, and problem-solving abilities.
The MSM program will equip graduates with the knowledge and skills to lead teams, make strategic decisions, and drive organizational success. Students will have the chance to connect with peers, faculty, and industry professionals, creating valuable networking opportunities that can lead to future collaborations and job prospects. Coursework is delivered in a hybrid format, with some content delivered online and the rest in monthly, face-to-face executive sessions.
The program is ideal for students who have earned a four-year degree in any discipline and want to develop business acumen to complement or enhance their skillset. It is also suitable for students with professional experience who want to move into management. Work experience is not a requirement to enroll in the program. The Master of Science in Management degree is composed of six core classes and two electives, with only one prerequisite (statistics), and could be completed in one calendar year.
The Master of Science in Management is available for every undergraduate major offered at Piedmont University. Students with non-business degrees interested in management or administration may seamlessly move into graduate school without taking courses outside their area of interest.
