Bill ID: 22-23-10
PCC ID: 22014
Name: PCC Proposal to Rename the Master of Science in "Business and Management" to "Management Studies"
Proposed: 09/30/2022
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: The Robert H. Smith School of Business proposes to change the name of its Master of Science in "Business and Management" to "Management Studies". The new title will align the program with industry expectations for such a degree, and the program will be more easily marketable to prospective students. Many peer and aspirational schools, including schools in our geographic area, have named similar programs Master of Science in Management Studies. These universities include Georgetown University, George Washington University, Pennsylvania State University, New
York University, Boston College, Duke University, and George Mason University.

This name change will also apply to the online version of the program.

The proposal was approved by the Graduate School PCC committee on September 29, 2022, and the Senate Programs, Curricula, and Courses committee on October 7, 2022.
