| The Master of Science in Advanced Management is an innovative, post-master's degree program that is designed for students who have already completed an MBA and are seeking additional study in a custom-designed advanced management degree program. It is ideal for students who wish to develop a competitive advantage in a focused area of management, such as strategy, leadership, marketing, or finance, and for senior-level executives who received their MBAs early in their careers, but desire additional education to match their changing responsibilities.
If you are a senior-level manager looking for personal and professional growth, stimulating interaction, and valuable insights on leadership and strategy, or if you are earlier in your career and are seeking a focused degree that can enable you to move ahead professionally, you should consider this degree program. This degree offers students an opportunity for intellectual renewal with a concentration on leadership, strategy, and critical thinking skills for managers in corporate, private, non-profit and governmental organizations. We venture beyond theory—spirited interaction with faculty and peers is a key aspect of the educational process, with benefits for both participants and their organizations.
The MSAM can be completed in two semesters of full-time coursework or over a longer period on a part-time/full-employed basis.
32 Unit Degree
—8 Units of Strategy Courses
—8 Units of Leadership Courses
—16 Units of Elective Courses
(Up to 8 units of electives can be taken outside of the Executive Management Program)
In the event that you are interested in seeking a Ph.D. from the Drucker School, you can apply for admission to that program as you approach completion of the MSAM, and your coursework in the MSAM will count towards the unit requirement of the Ph.D. However, keep in mind that the Drucker Ph.D. program is small by design and that few students are admitted and only after careful assessment of fit with the research orientations of our faculty and our assessment of the student's potential for success in our Ph.D. program.
