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.
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.
The Electronic Business Management Concentration focuses on the arena of electronic business and the Internet. Students study the process of digital-intensive market creation and the key aspects for managing a firm that operates increasingly in digital space. Relevant methods and concepts for effective electronicbusiness decision making are explored and applied.
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.
