MiM curriculum

Develop your business toolkit for any environment or industry. With an accelerated core curriculum, the W. P. Carey Master of Science in Management (MiM) program will help you uncover new strengths and build critical leadership and communication skills.

By providing an overview of key business principles, exploring leadership concepts in depth, and concluding with a real-world consulting project, the nine-month MiM program is the perfect complement to your undergraduate degree.


Optional internship track

Consider enrolling in our internship track and showcase the skills you've acquired in the program with a potential future employer while earning some real-world experience in the field or function you're looking to pursue. Selection of this track will extend graduation to August and requires you to secure an internship and enroll in a required 1-credit internship class for the summer following completion of all other program coursework.
