The Master's in Management (MiM) degree is a perfect example of GWSB’s innovative approach to graduate education, combining core coursework with a flexible selection of graduate certificate courses that serve as your electives. This format gives you a high degree of flexibility in designing a program tailored to your specific interests and needs, while giving you the management essentials that will serve you throughout your career. The program is also especially well-suited for liberal arts or STEM students without an undergraduate degree in business.

The Master's in Management program can be completed in one year of full-time study — part-time options are available as well — and you can choose to study online, on-campus, or in a hybrid format. The degree is also eligible to be combined with a GWSB’s bachelor’s degree in the 4+1 Program, allowing you to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s in five years.
