Southern Oregon University’s Master in Management program (MiM) is designed to enhance the skills of management professionals working in government, business, health care, and nonprofit organizations. Participants acquire the skills necessary to advance in their fields while continuing to work. The program offers a rich academic environment that combines fundamental leadership principles and specific management skills with a broad range of conceptual and applied perspectives.
This program is oriented toward people who are working or aspiring to work as leaders and managers in business, government, health care, or nonprofit organizations. Admission to the program is based on criteria that best predict success within these career tracks.
Admission Requirements Include:
- A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. No specific academic or technical field is stipulated.
- At least three years of increasingly responsible experience working full time at the management level. This is measured by such criteria as the number of people supervised, the size of budget for which the applicant has been responsible, and the degree of decision-making autonomy.
- Evidence of writing skills appropriate to the graduate level.
Program applications are reviewed by an admissions committee comprised of senior administrators and faculty. Evaluation is based on the program application form, three letters of reference, transcripts, a written 400-word statement of purpose, and other relevant materials. There are no entrance examinations required for applicants who meet the experience requirement.
An appropriate score on the GRE or GMAT may be accepted in lieu of managerial experience at the discretion of the MiM Admissions Committee.
