A new program being offered at Mars Hill University was designed to serve recent college graduates.

Mars Hill has a Master of Management program to go along with its Master of Education in Elementary Education program.

"You're going to really learn how to get your feet wet, how to get your hands dirty and do things in the work force rather than sitting in a classroom in a more traditional classroom setting," Master of Management student Carl Mattox said.

Spread sheets help management students strengthen their analytical skills. The program also helps them develop their soft skills to work more effectively in professional settings.

"Basically, we learn basic business concepts, kind of developing on what we learned in under grad. So, things like finance, how to manage teams, project management, things like that," management student Taylor McGhee said.

There is a three-week intensive program in the summer and then there are two more terms in the fall and two more terms in the spring

"One of the key elements in the program is a full-time, eight-week internship in the area in which the students see their career developing," Grainger Caudle, chair of the Business Department, said.

A Masters of Arts in Criminal Justice will begin later in the academic year.
