Earn Your MA in Management

First Class Starts January 2015

Saybrook’s School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation now offers a unique Masters in Management with a specialization in Global Workforce Collaboration. As both international businesses and non-profit organizations deal with the challenges of global management, managers who are able to use cultural diversity to advantage and to successfully integrate the efforts of dispersed teams, will be highly prized.

Every business in the 21st century is becoming a global business: customers, supply chains, raw materials, and marketing are all part of an emerging world market of unprecedented complexity.

Companies need managers who can work with teams and cultures from across the world. These managers must be able to organize people and processes with equal fluency and bring out the best in diverse teams of people who may never meet face-to-face

We can teach you how to do that.  

Saybrook’s School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation is now offering a unique MA in management, specializing in Global Workforce Collaboration.  As both international businesses and non-profit organizations deal with rapid change in multiple countries and cultures at once, managers who understand how to integrate virtual teams with on-site offices across the world are highly prized.  

Your ability to work with diverse populations, macro-economic trends, rapid technological changes, and the many other complex challenges that globalization poses to modern institutions, will help take your work to the next level – wherever in the world you chose to go.
