Master of Science in Maritime Business Management

The mission of the MSMB program is to produce highly skilled maritime business managers by providing graduates with the knowledge, and tools necessary to become creative problem solvers and thus to succeed in a variety of senior maritime business management and leadership positions.

Modeled after the Academy's two previous successful executive-formatted cohort-centered masters programs, the 31-credit, 10-course MSMB program is also presented one course at a time and each course runs for a six-week period. Classes are held every other weekend beginning Friday evening and ending Saturday afternoon. The MSMB classes are based at the Conference Center at Waltham Woods in Waltham, Massachusetts.  Students will be housed at the Embassy Suites in Waltham, Massachusetts.  

These sites were specifically chosen in consideration of its convenience for students working in the Greater Boston area. With overnight accommodations included in the program, students essentially have a one-way commute from work to class and students get the full graduate experience while still maintaining their job and their social life.
