MBA Without the Math

Many of our students refer to the MASCL program as the "M.B.A. without the math." That's because, much like an M.B.A. program, MASCL offers a mix of organizational leadership and communication skills. In fact, Seton Hall was the first university in the nation to offer an online graduate degree that provides this unique skill set, having launched the MASCL program in 1998.
