Overview of the NPSMA and the PSM Degree
The National Professional Science Master's Association (NPSMA), a professional membership association, is a collaborative of Professional Science Master's (PSM) degree program directors, faculty, administrators, industry representatives, alumni, and students that supports PSM degree initiatives. It engages businesses, industries, nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, and trade associations in the development of PSM degree programs and internship and job placement opportunities for PSM students and graduates.
The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) degrees serve the needs of scientists who want to improve their skills in business. The PSM program is designed to fill a management need for technology-based companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations. The business training is complemented by advanced science training in pertinent fields depending on the degree science/engineering focus. The U.S. is on the verge of losing its lead as an innovative and technological leader in the world, because it is not generating an adequate highly-trained workforce. PSM degrees are part of the solution!
