Saint Vincent College’s MSMOE program takes an innovative approach to exploring major issues facing managers in today’s business climate. Specifically, the program is innovative in its approach to supplementing classroom learning with a hands-on approach that provides students the tools they need in order to minimize waste in their organization while increasing quality, improving efficiency and fostering employee commitment. As such, the MSMOE defines “management” as focusing on three interrelated areas: people, organization and process. The MSMOE program helps its students build trust, foster collaboration, develop skills related to understanding the environment, craft goals and understand key metrics that help them achieve high productivity, output and efficiency for their organizations.

Faculty in the MSMOE program include leaders in their respective areas who have experience as managers, executives, researchers, business owners and consultants. Graduate of the program consistently report being more effective in their jobs as well as being aggressively recruited by organizations who see proper management techniques as crucial to improving their operations on the path to becoming truly excellent.

Saint Vincent College’s MSMOE program has earned a national reputation. For three straight years, U.S. News and World Report placed the program in the top 75 nationally in its rankings of top Non-MBA Business Online Graduate Programs, while in 2019, Value Colleges named it as one of the Top 25 Best Online Master’s in Management Programs in the U.S. as well as one of the Top 25 Best Value Master’s in Management Programs in the nation.
