Administration and Management (M.S.A. and C.A.M.S.)

Director: Associate Professor Robert Letovsky

At Saint Michael’s College, the Graduate Programs in Administration and Management offer both a Master of Science in Administration degree (M.S.A.) consisting of a 37-43 credit program, and an 18-credit post-Master’s Certificate of Advanced Management Study C.A.M.S.).

Both programs are unique in their blend of traditional approaches that characterize M.B.A. or M.P.A. degrees. The programs enable students to bring together fundamental concerns of both business management and public administration. The integration of the social and management sciences exposes the student to the complex issues of administration and management in the nonprofit, public and private sectors.

The curriculum is theory-based but course work is complemented by the student’s ongoing work experience, upon which many class projects and a final portfolio are based. Students can choose from several areas of specialization, including: Management/Organizational Behavior, Planning and Control, Marketing, Human Resource Management, International Management, Management Information Systems, and Nonprofit Management. The student body is diverse, and most students have considerable full-time work experience. This encourages a practical orientation throughout much of the program. Faculty are drawn from various disciplines and work settings. Designed specifically for working professionals, classes are scheduled on evenings and weekends or in intensive summer sessions.

See Graduate Catalog for program requirements.
