Congratulations to our first Executive MS cohort

The inaugural cohort of the Executive Master of Science in Health Systems – Manhattan program finished its program in April. After concluding the one-year program, the majority of the class members reported significant change in their careers and opportunities. United Hospital Fund of New York and Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science founder Jim Tallon was the keynote speaker at the recognition ceremony.

The Manhattan-based MS program — sponsored by the Watson School and the Alumni Association — is designed to provide individuals with a bachelor's degree the opportunity to gain sufficient knowledge and skills for modeling, analyzing and/or designing healthcare delivery systems and processes. For more information on this executive-format, weekend-only program, contact hornbeck@binghamton.edu or call 607-777-6511. Applications are accepted throughout the year, but applying early is encouraged.

 

Science applied to liberal arts – earn your PhD!

Have you ever thought about using systems science to explore and better understand music? Or to study art and the use of conceptual color in observation space? How about applying systems and mathematical concepts to studies of the humanities, social sciences, business or medicine in the interest of improving public life?

If you are looking to advance your degree through science, yet have a passion for subject matter that is not traditionally considered within the STEM domain, systems science offers an incredible opportunity for fact-based, scientific exploration and deeper understanding of the subject matter of your choice.

Classes are available in person and online. All majors are eligible; for more information about this Watson School program, contact hornbeck@binghamton.edu.
