Master of Arts in Management
Managers and future managers need critical knowledge and skills to launch and sustain successful careers. The Masters of Arts in Management (MAM) program emphasizes the qualitative skills of management.
This program is especially valuable for professionals who have been promoted from a technical position and need to learn how to manage, as well as for experienced managers who wish to deepen their knowledge of the human side of management. Students examine and develop their managerial and leadership skills through coursework and a self-directed learning plan. They use nationally recognized assessment tools to evaluate their knowledge and skills at the beginning of the program. In addition, students select an organization (usually their workplace) in which to apply their new knowledge and receive feedback from University of Redlands faculty.
The curriculum design of the M.A. in Management program is based upon extensive research on the capabilities and knowledge needed for management success. The approach used in the M.A. Management program to develop students' skills is a rigorous one. Students must demonstrate their ability to comprehend and analyze management challenges. Based on their analyses, students create possible solutions and evaluate the appropriateness of their recommendations.
At the conclusion of the program, students reassess their managerial strengths and weaknesses and compare these results to the same assessments done when they entered the program. They reflect on their evolution as managers and develop new plans for continued personal growth and development. Additionally, students analyze their learning from each course and integrate those insights into a comprehensive final presentation or paper.
