Master of Science in Administration degree: Acquisitions Administration concentration
This program combines a solid foundation in administrative practices with courses specifically designed for those who deal with the complexities of purchasing for or from the federal government.
As a student, you will gain insight into the RFP process and
preparing proposals. You’ll consider the legal aspects of government liability, standards of conduct, and the processing and resolution of contract disputes. And you will round off your studies by bringing your administrative skills to planning contracts, budgeting and best practices in negotiations.
Included in your core courses are the change management and people skills so vital to successful contract completion. You’ll learn how to work with different cultures, understand organizational dynamics and lead with emotional intelligence.
CMU’s military and federal employee tuition savings both apply to this program.
