The second cohort of Indiana University East’s Master of Science in Management program recently completed the course requirements. Graduates of this program will receive their diplomas during IU East’s 44th Commencement Ceremony on Friday, May 15. The M.S.M. program is a part of the School of Business and Economics.
The second cohort was composed of 19 graduate students who began coursework in August 2012 and met on weekends during the next 15 months to complete the program. In addition to undergraduate degrees in business, nine other undergraduate majors were represented within the cohort including Communication Arts and Sciences, Criminal Justice, Electrical Engineering, English and General Studies in the areas of behavioral and social sciences, leadership and supervision, graphic design, mathematics and political science. In all, there were 16 regional employers represented by students in the cohort.
Students were from the counties of Wayne, Ripley, Marion, Hamilton, Butler, Randolph, Fayette, Darke, LaPorte and Warren.
“We are so proud that there are now 37 M.S.M. graduates making contributions in a wide variety of organizations throughout the region. The value they add will be felt for many years to come,” said Fredricka Joyner, director of the Graduate Program and an associate professor of business administration and organization behavior.
The M.S.M. is designed for employed professionals seeking a graduate-level business degree. This graduate degree provides a highly interactive learning environment that includes analysis, communication, leadership, and innovative thinking. The learning outcomes are designed to help individuals sharpen their entrepreneurial and leadership skills to take their careers to the next level. This is accomplished through focused self-assessment, project-based learning and peer interaction.
