specialized programs

Now more than ever, students are opting to pursue a specialized MS degree as opposed to a traditional MBA. Many universities are responding to this demand by offering programs in finance, supply chain management, management, accounting, marketing analytics and others. Why the rise?

A Bloomberg Businessweek (http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-11-21/the-booming-market-for-specialized-masters-degrees) article cites the boom in these specialized degrees as a direct result of the high cost, time, and work experience needed to complete a tradition MBA program.

Schools such as Maryland’s Smith and Michigan’s Broad are working on their fifth and seventh MS program, respectively.

Which program would you choose? And why?
