The MSiM is a 30 credit hour program with a required pre-program Foundation week.  There are three component parts to the MSiM: preparation (18 credit hours), practice (6 credit hours)  and execution (6 credit hours).  The three parts will collectively engage the student, first with knowledge and integration of the various gears that are engaged in the functioning of a business in the preparation component; then enable application and analysis in the practice module and finally, apply the scientific method, using data and insights to research, build perspectives and create new knowledge that informs business practice, in the execute or culminating component. Classes are held in the evening three times a week beginning at 6:00pm in the Farmer School of Business in Oxford, OH.
