MS in Management: Elder Care Management

Overview

Master of Science Management

A large aging population means that the demand for professionals with an elder care master’s degree will increase in the coming years. Skilled and knowledgeable facility managers and industry leaders will make the difference in delivering excellent care at modest expense. Learn about the myriad effects of aging, relevant laws and policies, and the range of housing and care options available to seniors. In addition, you may have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through Lasell Village, a continuing care retirement community located on our campus, and first-hand knowledge from our RoseMary B. Fuss Center for Research and Intergenerational Studies, an on-campus center dedicated to enhancing quality of life for older adults through research and community partnership.

The 36 credits of coursework includes:

  • 21 credits of the core MS in Management curriculum
