Management and Supervisory Development

Program Overview

On Campus + Online = A Flexible Program Created for Working Professionals

The MSD Program’s curriculum was made just for you.


Choose from a variety of classes on campus and online to help boost your resume, prep for a career change, advance in your field, or earn transferrable credits to a 4-year institution like Warner Pacific, George Fox, and Oregon Institute of Technology. Online Learning classes, evening classes, full and half-day schedules on Fridays and Saturdays, plus the option to earn credit for projects completed on-the-job, means you’re more likely to excel in college and in the workplace.

Build a schedule of courses that works for you. You can earn the entire degree by taking online courses. Five of the 3 credit classes are offered on campus, on weeknights or on a 4-Saturday format. Only one of the required MSD Program’s 3 credit courses must be completed on campus—all of the remaining 3 & 4 credit classes are offered online, and most 1 credit classes may be taken either on campus or online.

Need to build experience specific to your field, or particular job function? Co-op education and project management classes provide even further opportunity for hands-on work/education experience.
