Emory Goizueta Business School joins the ranks of US business schools offering Master in Management degrees

Emory Goizueta Business School has announced the launch of its new Master in Management program which will welcome its first cohort in fall 2024. 

Enrolling in Emory’s Master in Management (MiM) degree means undergrads with a non-business major can fast-track to becoming business-savvy and develop a skill set across finance, marketing, and management in just 10 months. 

The program will cost $63,900 in tuition fees with estimated additional costs reaching up to $100k. The price is similar to other US Master in Management degrees such as those offered at Duke Fuqua School of Business ($62,200) and, M7 business school, Northwestern Kellogg School of Management ($64,842). 

However, Emory’s MiM degree is a unique offering as other pre-experience programs in the US typically require students to have a background in business. 

So, what can candidates expect from Emory’s Master in Management degree? 

Emory Goizueta MiM curriculum 

As the program is designed for students with no educational or work experience in business, students will be introduced to a wide range of new concepts and develop a holistic business acumen in a short time. 

The first semester of the program covers the fundamentals of business such as finance, accounting, marketing, and management. 

While covering complex concepts, these introductory courses on business fundamentals are structured to interlink and give a broad view of how different business functions work together. Then, courses such as Leading People & Organizations explore the role of business in society and the responsibility to build a more sustainable world. 

Throughout the program, students will build on critical thinking and communication skills gained at undergrad level, but learn to apply them to a business context. 

To achieve this, courses such as Leadership Decision Making & Teams and Management & Leadership Communication involve group work and presentations. 

In the first semester, Master in Management students will also start to think about their post-grad job search. Professors and career mentors will help them decide how their educational background aligns with potential careers in business and understand how to refine a personal brand. 

In the second semester, students can tailor their degree towards their interests through electives. This includes an Experiential Immersion Project that allows students to work on a project of their choice in a real-world setting, culminating all their knowledge of business. 

“The Master in Management program offers an innovative and flexible curriculum that equips recent graduates with the tools they need to leverage their passions and launch their careers,” said Andrea Hershatter, senior associate dean of undergraduate education at Emory Goizueta. “It bridges the gap between an undergraduate degree in liberal arts, science, or engineering and the skills needed to thrive in a business environment.”

Applications for Emory’s first Master in Management cohort, beginning in fall 2024, are now open.

This announcement from Emory Goizueta follows shortly after Chicago Booth announced the launch of its Master in Management earlier in 2023. 

While European business schools still offer the wide majority of MiM degrees—and dominate the rankings—it’s clear that the Master in Management is gaining prominence in the US.
