The Master of Science in Management (MSM) program was launched in 2017 with 40 students. Initially, the program name was Master of Science in Strategic Management (MSSM). In 2019 the program changed to MSM. The program is designed for students who have recently completed their bachelor’s degrees. Students may deepen their knowledge in the main functional areas of business – finance, accounting, operations management, and marketing and learn core management theories and concepts. The program emphasizes the delivery of hard skills by providing possibilities for implementing real-world projects.

The hallmark of the program is the culminating capstone course. Offered throughout the year (all semesters), this course envisages three options for the students – real-life business consulting project, a start-up project and Individual Research to produce a Thesis Paper.

Our faculty is a blend of local and international experts with an outstanding record of research and extensive knowledge in the industry. They work diligently to equip students with resources to pave a path towards a successful future. We utilize the most up-to-date tools for critical thinking, problem-solving, leadership and community engagement. Moreover, the college is working to keep up with development commensurate with the requirements of the market at the national and international level.

Thank you for your interest in the MSM program. I urge you to review our program catalog and attend an open house to learn more about the program.

Very truly yours,

Vardan Baghdasaryan, Ph.D.
Program Chair
