In today’s workplace, experienced managers are often active participants in strategy formulation and execution. They serve as key players in the continual repositioning necessary for an organization’s ongoing success.
Marymount’s Master of Science in Leadership and Management is designed to help practicing managers develop their skill set in order to be more effective. Both the classroom and the workplace become laboratories, as faculty members strive to intersect theory and application on a consistent basis. The program’s curriculum enhances a student’s capabilities in leadership, innovation, communication, teamwork, and strategic thinking – all of which are essential for an organization’s success and a manager’s advancement.
