The National Professional STEM Master's Association (NPSMA) is the membership association for the PSM initiative. It is a collaborative of Professional Science Master's (PSM) program directors, faculty, administrators, industry representatives, alumni, and students that supports PSM initiatives and engages businesses, industries, nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, and trade associations in the development of graduate programs and internship and job placement opportunities for PSM students and graduates.
The NPSMA serves as the focal point for the collective interaction of the nation's PSM programs with organizations that have a stake in graduate education in science, mathematics, and technology. The NPSMA initiates and encourages these exchanges by holding workshops and conferences, sharing PSM policy developments, and, most importantly, connecting the various constituents of the PSM.

The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) program is a two-year graduate program designed to fill a management need for technology-based companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations. Students pursue advanced training in science, while simultaneously developing valued business skills. Professional Science Master’s programs combine rigorous study in science or mathematics with coursework in management, policy, or law and emphasize writing and communication skills, and many include project management.
