APSU proposes weekend master's in management

With weekend classes in high demand, Austin Peay is proposing a new masters degree in management for Fall 2004.

Classes for the Master of Science in Management would be offered in an eight-week, Friday-Saturday format. Students attending full time would be able to complete the degree in one calendar year.

The programs availability is contingent on the approval of both the Tennessee Board of Regents and the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC).
