Master of Science in Accounting (M.S.A.)
The accounting graduate degree (M.S.A.) is designed to equip students to meet the educational standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).  Our M.S.A. program not only ensures that graduates will meet the 150-hour requirement, but it also deepens their accounting knowledge and skills, preparing them to excel in the profession.

Master of Science in Applied Economics (M.S.A.E.)
The economics graduate degree (M.S.A.E.) is for individuals seeking careers as economic, market or financial analysts in industry, government, or the financial sector.  In contrast to other purely academic master's degree programs in economics, the M.S.A.E. develops both research skills and practical skills which can be used to solve complex analytical and behavioral problems confronting business and government.

Master of Science in Human Resources  (M.S.H.R.)
The human resource management graduate degree (M.S.H.R.) provides the specialized knowledge required to excel and lead in a career in human resource management.   Designed to respond to an increasingly diverse and global workforce, the program focuses on developing skills and knowledge in compensation and reward systems, employment and labor law, labor relations, training and development, and staffing.

Joint Programs

The Healthcare Technologies Management Program is a collaboration between Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin that combines education in business and biomedical engineering.  The objective of this master's program is to educate professionals capable of managing the design, development, commercialization, and regulatory compliance of diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices, and the implementation, utilization and assessment of hospital-based healthcare technologies.

There are also a number of additional joint programs available where students get the benefit of an interdisciplinary learning environment while making it more efficient to complete the M.B.A. and the degree in the second discipline simultaneously.
