School Launches Three New Degrees, 13 Graduate Certificates

Tuesday, September 22, 2020

Three new degree programs and a suite of more than a dozen graduate certificates will make their debut at the Carlson School as part of its continued focus on expanding educational opportunities for recent graduates and established professionals.

One new option, which will begin recruiting students this fall while launching in Fall 2021, is the Master of Marketing Degree. This 9-month, 32-credit program provides a strong foundation in marketing by combining a year of intentionally designed course work, an experiential project with a real client, the opportunity to gain professional work experience through an internship, and job preparation. The new degree is designed for recent graduates or early career professionals.

A new Integrated Bachelor of Science in Business / Master of Arts in Human Resources & Industrial Relations degree program allows students to earn both degrees with only one additional year of classes. This degree provides a structured option to complete both the BSB and MHRIR degrees in an efficient and timely manner while still maintaining the rigors of the curriculum.

The final new program is the Master of Science in Business Analytics Program / Master of Science in Finance joint degree program. This dual-degree program capitalizes on market demand for graduate-level students who are trained in both business analytics and finance domain knowledge. The degree, effective now, will give students current, leading knowledge to add value to their work and organization as a whole.

Additionally, the Carlson School launched 13 new graduate certificates. Designed for working professionals, Graduate Certificates offer high-impact learning in 13 specific topic areas, from Leadership for Managers to Business Analytics. These certificates consist of 12 credits (four to six courses) of graded, transcripted coursework that can be applied to a master’s degree
