The Elon M.S. in Management program can be taken as either full-time or part-time, depending on the needs of the individual student. Students electing to pursue the degree full-time can complete the course of study in one academic year.

The Elon M.S. in Management program is designed for students who wish to combine a solid foundation in the core business fundamentals with substantial training in a specialized concentration. This program reflects two, recent changes in graduate business education. First, it reflects a growing market for specialized graduate business education, as compared to the more traditional, generalist approach taken in MBA programs. Second, whereas MBA programs require several years of work experience beyond the undergraduate degree, the M.S. in Management accommodates both the younger, newly graduated student with no or very little work experience as well as more experienced working professionals who are seeking advanced specialized skills. The balance of core business disciplines and specialized concentrations is a value-added, distinctive characteristic of the Elon M.S. in Management program. While specialized graduate business programs typically limit graduates to comparatively narrow career paths, the M.S. in Management’s business core enables graduates to translate their specialized training into a wide array of leadership and managerial roles in their organizations and in their careers.
