Walsh College Offers Webinar on Master of Science in Management: Human Resources, International Business, Strategic Concentrations

Walsh College will present a free, information-packed webinar for future students interested in enrollment in its new Master of Science in Management (MSM) degree program from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, July 24, 2014. Participant registration is required for the session at www.walshcollege.edu/webinars.

Designed for busy working professionals interested in pursuing an advanced degree, the webinar will cover course and program content; on-campus and online content delivery; application, admission, and enrollment requirements; and career services. It will conclude with a question-and-answer period. Walsh’s $35 application fee will be waived for all webinar participants.

The Walsh College MSM program provides students with the modern business principles and advanced managerial skills needed to lead effectively. The core of the MSM program incorporates high-level curriculum in primary business concepts, taught by faculty who are skilled practitioners in their fields.

Students must choose from one of three concentration areas:

• Human Resources Management — to assess the strategic role of human resources functions in achieving organizational goals; analyze recent trends in staffing and human resource management practices in a global environment; and respond to changes and challenges in human resources in managing a global workforce, among other issues

• International Business — to enhance cognitive analytical skills and overall performance in a variety of cultures and organizational settings; focus on strategic management theory and possible resolution practices; and tackle the cultural impediments that international executives are likely to confront, among other topics

• Strategic Management, to understand the strategic implications of managing organizations as complex adaptive systems in an increasingly dynamic global environment; and cultivate skill in using systems thinking to achieve competitive advantages, among other challenges.

The MSM program is also available as part of a dual-degree option with an MBA. The dual MBA/MSM allows students to complete two distinct graduate degrees in one concise program with only 12 additional credit hours of study (four courses), providing an important academic credential.

“The Walsh MSM delivers the skills necessary for students to move forward in their careers whether it’s a promotion, a new job, or a total career change,” said Sheila Ronis, Ph.D., professor, Management, and Chair, Department of Management, and featured webinar presenter. “It maintains Walsh’s high-quality standards for academic rigor and value sought by students and employers.”

Dr. Ronis is also president of The University Group, Inc., a management consulting firm and think tank, specializing in strategic management, visioning, leadership, national security, and public policy.

Fall priority registration for new students begins Monday, August 11 and runs through Tuesday, September 30. For more information on Walsh College and all programs, visit www.walshcollege.edu.
