Overview

Once professionals begin to move up within an organization and assume increased responsibility, the basis for success shifts from technical expertise to human expertise, and managing the people side of the enterprise becomes top priority. Sullivan's Master of Science in Management prepares professionals to become highly effective leaders through the in-depth study and application of critical management topics, including:

  • Methods and conduct of organizational assessments
  • Strategic management of human assets
  • Strategic planing in domestic and international environments
  • Managerial communication
  • Ethical decision making

Major emphasis is placed on the effects of rapid, disruptive change on organizations and administrative processes and the consequent ethical and moral responsibilities of managers to society at large.
