UD to Offer Two New Master in Management Tracks
May 24, 2019 | University Relations staff
DUBUQUE, Iowa – University of Dubuque is pleased to announce the addition of two new tracks in the master in management program. Master in management – aviation leadership (MMAL) and master in management – organizational diversity and inclusion leadership (MMDI) will begin fall 2019.
The new programs, which were built on industry research, can be completed in as little time as one year.
MMAL was designed to prepare graduates for a career in leadership and professional roles in the aviation industry. The 30 credit hour program will be offered in an eight-week online format to accommodate the growing demand of aviation professionals’ schedules. An applied internship will be required for students not currently employed in the aviation industry.
“Whether traveling for business, or living and working in a community miles from the main campus, MMAL students will be able to stay connected to their studies through the online format. Plus, each MMAL student is assigned an academic advisor to help mentor them through the program to degree completion,” said Gail Hayes, PhD, dean for academic affairs, graduate and adult studies.
Through theoretical preparation and applied experiences, MMAL students will develop an understanding of the management practices and leadership skills within the aviation industry. Graduates will be prepared to think strategically, integrate and construct new knowledge, develop intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies, and apply excellent moral character to the practices of an aviation organization.
MMDI was designed to prepare graduates to become change agents and help them utilize the diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and worldviews to shape the climate and direction of an organization. The 30 credit hour program will be offered in an eight-week on-campus format. An applied internship will be required for students not currently employed in a management related position.
Upon completion of the MMDI program, graduates will be prepared to identify, recognize, and remove barriers that impede productivity for the 21st century workforce. They will be able to develop, organize, and monitor competencies that foster collaboration in diverse settings as well as lead and manage with in-depth knowledge in key areas of finance, human resources, operations, and strategy.
UD officially launched its accredited master in management program in spring 2019 with tracks in communication and sport management. In the program, students will develop an understanding and application of management practices and leadership skills in an organization.
