MA Degrees in Management

The idea of management is best summed up as the ability of those in charge of a company, government, or organization – or those in charge of some facet of that organization’s activities – to positively influence growth and achieve the organization’s goals in the most efficient way possible. In essence, an effective manager will be able to utilize available resources in a constructive, resourceful manner.

Career Opportunities with this Degree

While the typical advanced management degree falls under the heading of Master of Business Administration or Master of Science, some available degree programs are of the master of arts variety – including the MA in Management and Leadership. Those who use this degree to seek top-level management positions, including general operations managers or regional director positions, will find that little to no change in employment figures is expected. At the same time, competition is thought to continue to be lively because of the prestige and relatively high wage scale these positions demand.

Jobs & Salaries with This Degree

Students who successfully obtain a Master of Arts in Management and Leadership may find themselves well-suited for executive level management positions or any number of other similar options, including business owner, finance manager, human resource manager, non-profit manager, organizational manager, or retail/sales manager. A median annual salary of $101,250 exists for those who manage companies and enterprises, with $77,890 the median for administrative services managers.

Requirements for Earning this Degree

A Master of Arts in Management degree – as opposed to the similar MBA or MS degree – may include a direct focus on the social and ethical implications of managerial decision-making, as well as how to properly. A bachelor’s degree is generally required prior to admission, and likely coursework will include the study of organizational behavior, legal issues in business, corporate responsibility, and effective executive communication.
