The internet platform Master in Management Compass celebrates its first birthday. The website was developed in 2010 to fill the lack of information on the Master of Science in Management (MIM) which emerged in the 2000s as a new postgraduate program in general management, besides the MBA. Today the Master in Management Compass offers a database with more than 400 MIM-programs worldwide and more than 700 specialized Management Masters such as in Finance, Marketing, or Supply Chain Management, research articles on Management Masters, student blogs, and an Ask-an-Expert function.
The Master of Science in Management (MIM) receives an increasing recognition from academic institutions, newspapers, and undergraduate students who look for a postgraduate program in management. In contrast to the MBA where the demand is stagnating or even decreasing, the demand for Masters in Management is increasing. Since 2005, the Financial Times publishes a Master in Management ranking every year and recently the British accreditation group AMBA also started to accredit Masters in Business and Management, in addition to MBA programs.
The Master in Management Compass, also called the MIM-Compass, responded to this development by providing a platform especially for Master in Management (MIM) programs as well as for specialized Management Masters. Besides the database with more 1,100 programs, the MIM-Compass publishes research articles on Management education, student blogs, testimonials, and information on rankings and accreditation and offers an As-an-Expert function.
Business Schools appreciate the focus of the platform: “It is certainly one of the best education portals” says Jack Coory from IE Business School. “Our MSc in Management Program has been part of this outstanding platform from the beginning and enjoys the excellent service and high level of professionalism delivered by the team of the MIM-Compass” says Steffen Löv, from the WHU. And Kelly Santina from Thunderbird School of Global Management says: “Thank you for the content and hard work to make the site what it is today and will be in the future!”
The website is offered in English and freely accessible. It can be used for gathering background information on postgraduate studies in Management, for searching for the “right” program and business school and for posting questions in the Ask-an-Expert function.
