This program offers the same set of eleven core courses in the foundational aspects of business (incorporating our special twist on technology and innovation management), but includes a reduced number of electives to allow students to finish in three semesters.  Students can complete one concentration if they choose, or select from across the different concentrations to develop a degree in general management.

Students who wish to experience an internship are welcome to take the summer to complete that opportunity and finish their third semester in the Fall of the second year.  Please note: immigration regulations require enrollment of international students for at least one full academic year (two semesters) before they are eligible for paid, off-campus work experiences.

Career resources support and professional development workshops, the Graduate Management Student Association, and activities organized by the Severino Center for Technological Entrepreneurship and the Center for Financial Studies help round out the program with additional opportunities. The Masters’ Scholars’ Research Program is available to qualified students.
