About the Program
The Master of Arts in Management (MAM) Program exposes students to realistic organizational management situations through service-learning projects for profit and not-for-profit companies in the local community. Students are able to put theory and methodology into practice as they collaborate to implement management and leadership principles in the modern workplace.
Whether developing human resources, enhancing organizational effectiveness, increasing productivity, or overseeing dynamic growth, the MAM equips students with the skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary to face the challenges common in leadership positions and achieve their professional and personal goals.
Class Scheduling for the Working Professional
Azusa Pacific University’s School of Business and Management conducts a year-round schedule. The academic year is divided into nine-week terms. MAM students can opt for a 12-month, full-time, concentrated program, or an extended program of 18 to 30 months of academic work. Fewer units in each semester are permissible. The School of Business and Management requires completion of a graduate degree within five years of initial enrollment.
Classes are held one evening per week, from 5:55–10 p.m., to accommodate working professionals. The average class size is 20.
Students benefit from personal attention and opportunities to build meaningful relationships with professors and peers from diverse backgrounds.
To be classified as a full-time graduate student, one must be enrolled in at least nine units during each of the two nine-week sessions (e.g., Fall I and Fall II). New students are accepted each nine-week semester. The application deadline is approximately four weeks before the start of any session. For more information, call (626) 815-3835.
MAM students meet with the program coordinator to discuss scheduling classes and selecting electives based on personal interests and circumstances. Academic advising provides an opportunity to continuously monitor students’ progress and individualize their programs of study. All graduate students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for the duration of the program.
