The Master of Science in Management Science degree has been designed for students who want highly marketable technical expertise in 24 months.
The MS in Management Science degree program’s flexibility allows students to design a program of study that fits their specific needs. Unlike most of the MS degree programs, which have specific elective requirements, the MS in Management Science degree program allows students to choose their own course of study, pulling courses from the Jindal School Graduate Catalog to satisfy elective requirements.
The goal of the program is to help students acquire principles and techniques needed to develop creative solutions in a changing business environment, and contribute quickly to company success within their area of specialization.
Note: To apply for this degree program, an undergraduate business degree is not required.
