Unlike the traditional master’s program, Western’s MAS degree provides a solid core of courses in the chosen option, combined with courses in business, communication, marketing, economics, statistics, and management.
The MAS degree is a Professional Master’s Degree because it integrates graduate-level business knowledge with technical competency. Applied learning and applied research are important aspects of the degree, and students will work in teams and apply their skills to real problems and issues. Internships may be a component of the program as well.
