Management, Entrepreneurship Concentration, M.S.


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 NYU-Poly, 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 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 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.

Entrepreneurship


The Entrepreneurship Concentration is offered for the manager, professional or specialist interested in entrepreneurial management—as an entrepreneur starting a new business, as an “intrapreneur” in a large, established firm, or as a professional (e.g., venture capitalist) interested in playing a role in new enterprises. This concentration develops a valuable entrepreneurial state of mind for any business setting. Modern entrepreneurial concepts and cases are learned and applied.
