Tailor Your Degree

Selecting the master’s degree program right for you isn’t exactly a one-time deal; it’s an ongoing journey. Each option features customizable elements such as concentrations, study tracks and graduate certificates. No two people’s careers are exactly alike. Why should their education be?

Learn by Doing

The case-study approach still has its place. But we augment lessons on what others have done through a hands-on approach that provides authentic experiences.

Industry-Sponsored Projects

In our culminating capstone projects, master’s students work in teams on challenges currently facing our industry partners. Students engage directly with representatives of the partner organization and present final deliverables.


Many of our master’s programs require internships. Over 8-12 weeks, students apply what they’ve learned while gaining workplace experience. Our team of career development experts helps students identify relevant internship opportunities.
