Fall 2017: School of Business Update

Master of Science in Management (MSM) program expands career potential

The MSM program, a new program designed to train and prepare the next generation of business managers launched in the School of Business, caters to students with bachelor’s degrees in a variety of subjects to build their credentials and boost their talents, ultimately making them more marketable. Entrepreneurs looking to enhance their interpersonal skills and strategic problem-solving will find the MSM valuable as they move beyond the technical knowledge and experience provided by a traditional MBA.

Real Estate Development program targets industry innovators

Graduate students in the Master’s in Real Estate Development program won first place in the 6th Annual NAIOP/ULI University Challenge Award this spring for their plan outlining the future use of the Circle Centre Mall in downtown Indianapolis. Program Director Eric A. Harvey said the University’s victory against teams from Butler, IUPUI, ISU and Ball State underscores the unique approach of the applied degree. In addition to classes being taught by industry professionals, students have access to an advisory board that guides the curriculum and program. The Master’s in Real Estate Development program trains career changers and working professionals with industry experience how to successfully manage development projects, proactively shape the business environment and analyze variables that contribute to growth opportunities.
