8 reasons why you should get a Master of Science in Management online

If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd as you’re applying for jobs, a specialized master’s degree is a great way to give your resume and skill set a boost. A Master of Science in Management (MSM) from the University of Florida is the perfect degree for those who want to gain business management skills and don’t have a business degree or previous work experience.

The new UF Master of Science in Management Online program option takes one more requirement off the list – having to come to the UF campus to earn your degree. The UF MSM Online program doesn’t require a single campus visit, allowing you to take classes from anywhere in the world.

Check out the eight other reasons why you should consider earning your Master of Science in Management online.

  1. Flexibility

Earning your degree has never been easier when you take your studies online. While the MSM Online program is designed to be completed in one year, you can modify your course schedule to take fewer classes within a semester and complete the program over a longer period of time.

  1. No work experience required

Some graduate programs require you to have work experience before pursuing a degree, but with the UF MSM Online program, it’s not something you need to have on your resume to apply.

The MSM program is designed for students without prior professional work experience, which allows you to begin your master’s degree soon after you earn your bachelor’s degree. You don’t have to wait until you gain professional work experience to begin your studies.

  1. Prepare for your future career, no matter your educational background

If you want to be noticed as you apply for jobs or meet recruiters, a master’s degree is a great way to help your resume rise to the top. The UF MSM program is specifically designed for those without a business background, so you can gain managerial business skills and broaden your educational perspective.

Regardless of whether you want to break into the business world, or obtain a managerial position in your chosen field, you can open your advancement opportunities with a Master of Science in Management online.

If you do have a business background and want to deepen your understanding of the global economy, you can also pursue a degree online in the Master of International Business program.
  1. Learn from the best

The same world-class faculty that teach as part of the on-campus MSM program teach the classes for the Online program. Their classes are specifically designed for online students using techniques developed through continued use of emerging technology.

  1. Access to on-campus activities

Earning your degree online doesn’t mean you aren’t connected to the UF campus. In the MSM Online program, you are welcome to attend career fairs, networking events and other campus events. You also have the opportunity to participate in study abroad programs.

  1. Career coaches on call

An additional campus resource students in the MSM Online program have access to is the career coaches in Warrington’s Business Career Services office. The Business Career Services team relies on a strategic approach and has a successful track record of preparing students during their job search process.

  1. Combined-degree options

If you’re already a student at UF, you can combine your studies, and earn your bachelor’s and master’s degree faster. Why not take the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and resume while also saving time and money?

  1. Warrington is a pioneer in online education

The Warrington College of Business has been in the online education space for two decades. It launched its Online MBA program in 1999 and continues to be ranked as one of the top programs in the world.

The same technology that makes the UF MBA Online program one of the most respected in the industry is available in the MSM Online program.
