MUW launching new global commerce master's degree

COLUMBUS — This summer Mississippi University for Women will launch its master of science in global commerce program, which will be delivered completely online. Its purpose is to prepare graduates to manage global business operations to the benefit and competitive advantage of companies across the region.

Dr. Scott Tollison, dean of the College of Business and Professional Studies, said this program is ideal for an individual who works for a multinational firm and has to collaborate with global partners.

Students are required to complete 36 hours, 12 which are electives. Core courses include global telecommunications, global marketing management, systems project management, supply chain management, cross cultural management, financial management, international business law and environmental sustainability management.

“We’ve made it a multidisciplinary approach. They are getting a little bit of all of the basics,” Tollison said.

Additional requirements include the Graduate Management Admission Test, completion of prerequisite courses (all available at MUW) and an essay that focuses on the applicant’s accomplishments and professional aspirations.

Tollison said the program is designed to be completed in four semesters, while some may be able to complete in three. Students can enter the program in June, August or January. All courses will be delivered by graduate faculty.
