How to Apply for the Management Early Assurance Program

Outstanding high school seniors are invited to apply for Ohio University’s Early Assurance Program (EAP) for the Master of Science in Management (MSM).

Early assurance program students apply for admission to the MSM program while they are still in high school, and a slot in the master’s program is reserved for them as long as they maintain program requirements during their undergraduate time at OHIO. 

The Master of Science in Management program equips students with the managerial acumen and analytical skills necessary to manage resources, lead teams, and apply solutions to organizational challenges. Students will start their MSM degree with coursework in our Management and Leadership Certificate, and then customize the remainder of their degree by choosing two of the following certificates:

  • Business Analytics
  • Business Analytics Leadership
  • Business Venturing and Entrepreneurship
  • Human Resources Management
  • Operations and Supply Chain Management
  • Strategic Sales and Sales Leadership
