There seems to be a small but strong group of voices against the Master of Science in Management (and Leadership) degree. I'm not sure why. I see it often compared to the MBA, but is that an accurate comparison? Granted, the two degrees may share common courses, but MBA programs focus on finance/accounting (hard skills), while MSM/L programs are more focused on dealing with and managing people (soft skills). Both skill types are good to have, although I'd personally lean more toward those focused on dealing with people since the majority of the most successful business professionals we've known of were great diplomats, relationship builders, and deal-makers, rather than general financiers and accountants. How do you feel about it?
