Texas A&M - Mays to Launch a Master of Science in Business

New program aimed at non-business majors; set to launch in 2016

Texas A&M's Mays Business School has announced that it will launch a Master of Science in Business program next year.

The new program will take ten months to complete and is aimed at non-business majors who have less than 18 months of work experience after completing their undergraduate studies. It aims to help equip students "with core business knowledge, solid critical thinking skills and a basic understanding of leadership best practices—with emphases on experiential learning, teamwork and career preparation," according to a Mays press release.

The program will be delivered in blocks. The first block will be three to four weeks long and take place in July and August. The remaining four blocks are planned to be seven weeks long with two blocks in the regular fall semester and two blocks in the regular spring semester.

In total, students will take 17 classes. The curriculum covers a range of essential business topics, with courses in accounting, international business management, marketing, career management, and more.

To apply for the program, potential candidates should have a non-business undergraduate degree from an accredited university. Prerequisites include courses in math, economics, and statistics.

Mays Business School is listed by FIND MBA as one of the top 10 business schools in Texas.
