Career Opportunities

Earning a master’s degree can significantly improve your lifetime earnings and employability. Higher-level job opportunities tend to focus less on technical expertise and more on leadership – i.e. the ability to build and lead a team, analyze and present information, make good decisions and plan strategically.

Our MSBC program is designed to complement your technical skills. You’ll walk away with the necessary management, leadership and communication knowledge and skills needed to move up the career ladder—no matter your academic or professional background.
