Arizona PSM Initiative

The science of business; the business of science.


People Working in OfficeThe Professional Science Master’s (PSM) is a degree program designed to meet growing industry needs for applied scientists, engineers, and mathematicians and to provide rewarding careers for undergraduate science and math majors.  Created in 1997 with the support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the PSM degree is designed to be a faster, less-expensive, and more employer-oriented alternative to traditional graduate degrees in science and math.  Today, over 3,000 students are enrolled in 229 programs at 105 U.S. institutions.

Arizona’s public universities — Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and The University of Arizona — offer numerous innovative PSM degrees to prepare graduate students interested in science and technology with enhanced training in business and management skills.
