In the last 45+ years, tens of thousands of students have earned the MSA degree.

Our MSA degree is for professional administrators seeking to develop a broad range of trending management and leadership skills. Offered both on campus and online to over 2,000 students each year, this degree is interdisciplinary in nature and has been in existence since 1974.

We have you in mind by offering a great deal of flexibility with a variety of concentrations from which you can choose. In this interdisciplinary program, faculty are drawn from many departments. Your time is valuable, so our program can be completed face-to-face, online, or through a hybrid format in many locations.

The administrative core (about half of the course work) prepares you for administrative positions in a variety of organizational settings. You can tailor your concentration area (the other half of the degree) to what really interests you. You'll join our MSA community of both full-time and part-time students. Most classes are scheduled in the evenings and on the weekends to accommodate your schedule.
