Degree Programs / MSCM: Embedded Certificate

Embedded Certificates


MSCM graduates have applied their learning to a variety of professional pursuits, with many enhancing or expanding their areas of responsibility within management, human resources, or education; while others have undertaken new career directions as mediators, facilitators, ombudsmen, leaders of faith communities, and patient care advocates. Alumni feedback suggests the MSCM curriculum is well-suited to a range of domestic and international positions across the corporate, non-profit, and public sectors. The opportunities are virtually limitless for leveraging the MSCM degree for use in whatever your chosen profession may be. Additionally, many of our graduates say that the personal development they achieve over the course of the MSCM is just as beneficial as the professional development received. The MSCM program produces well-informed, insightful and reflective citizens to lead in today’s challenging environments.
