 May 2011  
MSM Master of Science in Management Is an accredited master's degree in leadership your ticket to advancement?

Unlike a broad MBA program, the focused MSM is designed for students who have already demonstrated a high level of competency in the practical applications of their chosen fields. This program provides those outstanding professionals with the education and skills to be highly effective leaders.

"Technically competent individuals are everywhere," said Glenn Boseman, DBA, CLF®, CLU®, Dean of The American College's Irwin Graduate School. "But leaders are rare. What many professionals don't fully understand is that leadership can be learned, and the MSM program is specifically designed to give participants that extremely valuable skillset."
