The Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Management, and Certificate of Graduate Studies in Management programs are designed to prepare graduates to successfully lead and manage organizations in a constantly changing environment. In both the for-profit and not-for-profit environments, today’s executive is faced with a myriad of concerns ranging from ethical and human rights issues to globalization and environmental protection. The Salve Regina University business administration and management curriculum provides the technical knowledge and skills to appreciate and address these and other critical contemporary issues. The programs are directed toward developing leaders with a focus on ethics, organizational behavior, finance, economics, accounting and strategic management. Social purpose and workplace humanization are underlying program values aligned with the University’s mission to work for a world that is harmonious, just and merciful.

The Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Management degrees may be earned by taking courses on campus, online or by participating in specially designed programs on-site at your workplace. Many students accelerate completion of their degrees by taking a combination of on-campus and online courses simultaneously. If a business, agency or organization is interested in sponsoring an onsite program, a representative should contact the graduate program director for additional information.

Of these 12 credits, six are applied to the undergraduate degree. Final M.B.A. or M.S. program acceptance is contingent upon successful completion of the undergraduate degree and successful completion of any graduate courses in the senior year.

Certificate of Graduate Studies Programs

The certificate programs in management are designed to respond to the growing need for professional growth and development in an atmosphere of rapid change.

Certificate programs offer opportunities for those who desire continued professional development without formal pursuit of a master’s degree. Curriculum certificate programs are available in management, human resources management, organizational development, and individualized concentrations.
