The 30-credit Master's in Strategic Management and Executive Leadership is designed to help you think more strategically; enhance your ability to formulate, articulate, and implement strategy; and lead in an ethical and responsible manner.
The program is structured into three distinct areas:
- Core courses (18 credits)
- Primary concentration (6 credits)
- Electives (6 credits)
All courses must be at the 500- or 800-level. Depending on the semester of admission and course offering schedule, you can complete the program in as little as five semesters of study with each semester consisting of at least two courses.
Your courses are primarily asynchronous — meaning you are not required to attend online classes at a specific time. Most courses, however, will include a voluntary synchronous session weekly or bi-weekly that allows you to interact with professors and peers virtually. These engaging sessions are recorded, giving you the chance to watch them at a later date, if your schedule allows.
Your education will also blend self-study with peer-to-peer interaction over an online learning network. You'll complete weekly assignments, readings, discussions, and occasional group work, as well as exams and other activities designed to enhance your learning outcomes, all at times that are most convenient for you.
