Missouri State University (MSU), a long-established university of mid-west US, has invited applications for its Administrative Studies Graduate Programme, titled Master of Science in Administrative Studies (MSAS).
The interdisciplinary programme aims at enhancing administrative abilities with core focus in areas like Applied Communication, Criminal Justice, Homeland Security, Individualized Studies, Producing and Screenwriting and Sports Management.
MSU is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, US, which ensures that the MSAS programme, along with other university programmes, meets standards for excellence in higher education.
Elaborating on the programme, Bradley V Bodenhausen, Assistant Vice President for International Programmes, Missouri State University, US, said, “The Master of Science in Administrative Studies (MSAS) is the most-sought after programme because of its interdisciplinary nature. The MSAS programme prepares an individual for a variety of administrative positions in a wide range of organisations like defence sector or private investigative firms. Successful completion of the programme would not only expand a student’s knowledge base and skills for enhanced administrative roles within organisations, but also make him/her a global citizen, given his interaction with cross-culture peers, faculty and relevant industry people during internships.”
