Master of Science in Administration





Welcome to the Master of Science Administration (MSA) web site. The MSA degree is offered both on and off campus to over 3,000 students each year. The MSA degree is interdisciplinary in nature and has been in existence since 1974. In the last 40 years over 65,000 students have earned the MSA degree.

The MSA degree offers a great deal of flexibility with a variety of concentrations from which students can choose. (Not all concentrations are available at each site.) The administrative core (about half of the course work) prepares students for administrative positions in a variety of organizational settings. The MSA student population includes both full-time and part-time students. Most classes are scheduled in the evenings and on the weekends to accommodate all students.

If you want more information on the program than is offered on this web site, we invite you to e-mail us at or call us at 989-774-6525. Students interested in pursuing the MSA degree through one of our Global Campus locations should call 1-800-950-1144.

Close to home. Convenient. Not too big. Not too small. Beautiful. Just right. That's how visitors describe our campus. Most of our students tell us these features were important in their decision to choose Central Michigan.
