To help more professionals gain the necessary acumen to be a talented leader, WGU created its Master of Science in Management and Leadership degree program. WGU’s M.S. Management and Leadership program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)—a leading specialized accreditation association for business education. Designed with input from industry experts, this program includes courses on business acumen, management, strategy, and leadership. Graduates will be prepared to fill management roles including president, vice president, branch chief, director of operations, or executive director.
Online programs allow for unparalleled flexibility, so students can complete coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from WGU's competency-based learning model, which makes it possible for them to potentially graduate faster by completing courses as quickly as they can prove mastery of the required material. Additionally, Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.
