PSM: SMARTER MBA
Who would have guessed that majoring in math and science would lead to success in the business world--after the dot-com crash? The professional science master's (PSM) is developing into the MBA for the technical set, allowing them to transition into the executive-level positions they desire.
"The students that we turn out are not future cubicle rats, but future project managers," says Charles MacCluer, director of Michigan State's PSM program in industrial mathematics.

"Business is getting too scientific to be managed by businessmen," he says. "They need a new hybrid, a scientifically trained person."
Fairly warned, Warren Buffet.
