MASTER OF MANAGEMENT


M.M. students learn regional and global interdisciplinary perspectives from a wide array of world-class experts in management, cognitive science, information systems, engineering, physics, economics, philosophy and environmental studies to become T-shaped professionals — leaders with both depth and breadth.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

A unique educational experience awaits future leaders at the University of California, Merced. By combining faculty and disciplines in ways that are not traditionally done in other management programs, our Master of Management (M.M.) program trains you to tackle the challenges facing industry and society today and in the future.


Offered by our interdisciplinary Management of Innovation, Sustainability, and Technology (MIST) faculty, this 12-month professional-degree program is unlike any other.


Carefully crafted courses draw on concepts from business, engineering, natural and social sciences, computing, and data analytics. Projects and case studies provide practical experience and applied learning.


Students from all social and educational backgrounds can develop the knowledge and skills to navigate the challenges of aligning people, organizations, information, technology and the natural world.


These diverse skills and experiences are exactly the training companies, agencies and nonprofits are looking for.


If you’re looking to complement your undergraduate degree with real-world management knowledge and skills and a visionary approach to leadership, we encourage you to apply.
