The Professional Master of Science in Management (PMSM) program provides an alternative to the MBA degree for students who desire specialized study and the development of a high level of professional proficiency in a functional area of business. The primary track in the Management program is Human Resources and Change Management, which prepares students to work in organizations in such areas as human resources, strategic planning, organizational effectiveness, staffing, and employee relations.
This program is a professional program with a market rate tuition. The tuition is the same for Florida residents and nonresidents (see PMSM Tuition Schedule). Please visit http://www.ucfedc.com/ for more information.
