Strengthen your management and leadership skills as they relate to the value-added exporting of U.S. manufactured products, services and technology.
The Master of Science in Marketing and Export Management degree program (MSXM) is a technology-oriented leadership program designed to meet the needs of engineers, business managers and other professional and technical persons. The MSXM emphasizes practical knowledge as a critical means to supplement a base of required objective skills. Graduates of the program will possess the broad range of knowledge and skills necessary for senior management or entrepreneurial positions in a wide range of industries.
The MSXM is based upon the philosophy that for organizations to compete in the increasingly intercontinental marketplace their managers need a deep understanding of global business practices. This knowledge will enable them to envision, design, create, sell and maintain products and services that add value to a broad base of humanity living and working in environments as diverse as the individuals themselves.
Faculty in the MSXM program have extensive knowledge and first-hand experience with the global business environment and international markets. Most are employed in the discipline(s) they teach, and most have Ph.Ds.
The MSXM is built on three specific pillars:
- Individuals gain skills and knowledge across functional business areas. - Students cultivate technical skills in global resource management and export. - Students become adept at strategy development, strategic global marketing, global business and entrepreneurship.
The specific areas of major importance complement those articulated in other MSOE management master’s degrees, but further capitalize on global economic opportunities, growth of untapped markets and revitalization of product development to include export markets.
