An MSM is right for you if you want to climb the corporate ladder or become an entrepreneur. The skills you acquire through an MSM program qualify you for managerial positions in just about any sector, exponentially increasing your income potential. An investment of less than two years and tuition (supplemented with financial aid) can reward you with higher lifetime earnings and increased job satisfaction. 

Master of Business Administration programs (MBA) typically requires students to have an undergraduate degree from a business school and several years of work experience. MBA curriculums focus heavily on finance and economics. MSM programs are perfect for just about anyone – even those who don’t think of themselves as businesspeople. MSM students do not need business degrees or work experience. They might want to transition into entrepreneurship. That means they want their education to focus more on leadership skills, organizational behavior, and strategic management topics, rather than finance and economics. They will get exactly what they need in the MSM program that Keuka College offers. 

Your Keuka College family supports you every step of the way. In addition to caring faculty members committed to your success, there are several other resources for you to draw upon. Experienced and knowledgeable librarians can meet with you one-on-one to assist you with research and help you learn to use their many virtual and in-person resources.
