The MS Management Curriculum


1. Core Courses


The six required core courses shown below provide an 18 credit foundation upon which students can pursue cutting-edge specializations within the degree program. These core courses expose students to the disciplines required of a professional manager. Students who have taken these courses elsewhere or previously at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, or who have had equivalent experience, may apply to substitute elective courses for such core courses; however, all students are required to complete the MSM degree’s 36 credits.

Note:


Core courses should be taken as early in the program as possible.

2. Areas of Concentration


Students must formally choose and declare a 15 credit area of concentration, which can be from among those listed below or, with the MSM Program Director’s pre-approval, a set of courses that meet individual needs through a custom MSM concentration. A minimum of four courses must be selected in any one concentration area. Courses in all the available concentrations are shown below.

3. Capstone Project Course


This required, integrating three-credit course,

 , is recommended for a student’s final semester. In special cases, MG-GY 997X MS Thesis in Technology Management  may be substituted for students wishing to produce a major dissertation in a specialty with the permission of the MSM Program Director and the TM&I Chair. Such a student must follow the Master’s Thesis course requirements.

Concentration Course Requirements


Each MSM concentration sequence comprises a minimum of five courses totaling 15 credits. Substitutions may be made with the MSM Program Director’s pre-approval in any concentration area.

Information Management and Telecommunications Management


The Concentration in Information Management and Telecommunications Management is for professionals in information technology (IT), telecom and networking, programmers, systems experts and others with IT-related career goals and experience. Students learn to understand how IT and networking enhance the effectiveness of modern firms and the ability to manage creative and professional people.

Select Three:


Select three 3 credit courses of interest (for nine credits) with an “MG-GY” or “FRE-GY” or “IE-GY” or “MN-GY” prefix. FRE-GY courses may require pre-approval from the FRE Department. IE-GY and MN-GY courses may require pre-approval from the MS in IE and MS in MN Program Director. One optional minimum 3 credit MSM Restricted Concentration Elective is permitted as a course of interest selection.
