UC Merced's Master of Management (MM) Professional Degree is an immersive twelve-month program that complements your undergraduate degree with a competitive set of practical, project-based work and management skills for addressing the cross-functional challenges faced by professionals in for-profit and non-profit enterprises and public organizations.

Is an MM like an MBA? Our MM program is not a substitute for nor a condensed version of an MBA

Are you a graduating senior or recent college graduate?
Are you looking to complement your undergraduate degree with real-world management skills?
The MM curriculum draws on diverse disciplines within the fields of engineering, natural and social sciences, computing and data analytics, and business management.

Are you an international student? The MM program qualifies for the STEM OPT Visa Extension Program.


UC Merced is located in California's Central Valley, close to Yosemite National Park and to Silicon Valley

The MM program pays particular focus to management problems associated with California's Central Valley. In consultation with regional employers, this program is designed around relevant case studies and integrative team projects that foster valuable discussion, oral presentation, professional writing, and leadership skills for solving complex problems about sustaining our environment, society, and economy. The curriculum highlights the challenges of finding solutions that simultaneously balance corporate profitability and stewardship of natural resources.
