MS Degrees in Management

As there are a wide number of available career paths for prospective managers of industry, government, non-profit, or social organizations, a vast array of advanced degree programs focusing on the study of management also exists. The majority of such programs fall under either the Master of Science or Master of Business Administration heading – an MS being more tailored toward those seeking a practical approach to management that helps develop personal skills; an MBA taking on a broader approach that takes into account the cause and effect of decision-making.

Career Opportunities with this Degree

A wide selection of master of science in management degrees exist. Students may choose to focus their studies in one of a host of specialties, including human capital (HR) management, supply chain management, project management, operations management, information systems management, international management, sustainable management, or leadership and organizational development. It has been concluded that there will not be much job growth – if any – over the next 10 years for those seeking advancement in a particular area of management. At the same time, salaries are expected to remain high – with competition high as well – for those who see top-level management positions.

Jobs & Salaries with This Degree

Specific opportunities for job growth – and more specifically the comparative median annual salaries – will vary depending on specialty. Top-level executives – those specifically serving as managers of companies and enterprises – can expect a median annual income of $113,000. Those in various computer-related fields may see a median of nearly $133,000, while those in government management positions could expect a median of about $82,000.

Requirements for Earning this Degree

Students will be expected to have already completed a bachelor’s degree program prior to admission to likely all available MS in management programs. While specific curriculum offerings will vary based on specialization, students can expect comparable core courses across all spectrums, including the study of management and leadership, negotiation and conflict resolution, managing teams, budgeting and financial management, and managerial decision making.
