The information session is designed for attendees to ask any questions they may have. Items that will be discussed include the philosophy of the program, course requirements, special programs including experiential seminars and trips, and the program’s unique blend of traditional management concepts with Operational Excellence tools.

The MSMOE program takes an innovative approach to exploring major issues facing managers in today’s turbulent 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 to minimize waste in their organizations while increasing quality, improving efficiency and fostering employee commitment.  As such, the MSMOE defines “management” as focusing on three interrelated areas: people, organizations and processes. The MSMOE Program helps its students build trust, foster collaboration, develop skills related to understanding their environment, craft goals and understand key metrics that help them achieve high productivity, output and efficiency for their organizations.

Faculty in the MSMOE include leaders in their respective areas who have experience as managers, executives, researchers, business owners and consultants. Graduates of the program have consistently reported 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.

The MSMOE program at Saint Vincent has earned a national reputation. Value Colleges recently named it one of the Top 20 Best Online Master’s in Management Program in the U.S. and one of the Top 25 Best Value Master’s in Management Programs in the country. U.S. News and World Report placed the program 32nd in its ranking of top Non-MBA Business Online Graduate Programs.

For additional information on the Oct. 29 information session and on the MSMOE program in general, contact Urick either via email or by phone at 724-805-2654.
