MS in Industrial Management

A Uniquely Designed Curricula Developed with Industrial Managers

The program’s strength is the affordable curriculum presented by highly qualified faculty with expertise in the area of industrial management. The curriculum emphasizes student achievement while providing the flexibility necessary for students with busy schedules. The comprehensive curriculum focuses on technology management and organizational effectiveness with a research and scholarly work component designed to meet the needs of the individual student. Library resources are unequaled in similar size universities, with a strong emphasis on remote database access. This makes distance learning and associated research easier to achieve.

A recent survey of graduates found the average student’s age was 40 with a mean salary of $65,000 per year. Some occupational titles include vice president of operations, production manager, shift supervisor, quality systems manager, and plant manager. Flexibility is built into the cognate coursework and culminating experience to allow several curricular paths leading to graduation.
