“The curriculum offered in the Master of Science in Management program fostered a collaborative learning environment and experiential sharing in the classroom. The balance of course offerings in management, leadership and finance coupled with the small class size strengthened my professional development and encouraged me to apply new knowledge and skills to my career.”

Lauren always wanted to pursue a master's degree in management, but she waited until she found a program that matched her professional interests and goals. She discovered that program at Emmanuel. Emmanuel's Master of Science in Management (MSM) program allowed her to explore themes in management and leadership that have helped her excel on the job. Currently an officer in the Donor Relations department of the Boston Children's Hospital Trust, the hospital's fundraising arm, Lauren plans and executes cultivation and stewardship events for hospital leaders and major donors. Lauren, who earned her bachelor's degree from Emmanuel in 2012, draws on her Emmanuel education every day, and she is grateful for the opportunities provided through the MSM program.
