Master of Science (M.S.) in Management and Organizational Behavior

Companies are demanding managers who can effectively achieve financial results and effectively manage human resources.

The Accelerated Master of Science (M.S.) in Management and Organizational Behavior program at Benedictine University is recognized locally and nationally as a leader in education for effective management of high-performance organizations. For more than 50 years, the scholars within Benedictine University's Master of Science in Management and Organization Behavior program have brought the world's best leaders to campus. This program is intended for working professionals currently holding positions in organization development, line management or a closely-related field such as human resource management.

The curriculum provides students with a solid foundation in management skills, such as strategic planning, change management and human resources. Most of all, it fosters collaborative faculty-student relationships aimed at achieving a common goal: learning to create and sustain excellence in management.
