University of Maryland University College's Doctor of Management (DM) degree program recognizes the criticalimportance of an interdisciplinary and global perspective for leaders and managers. Building on the Graduate School's three principal knowledge bases - management, technology, and international operations - this program prepares individuals to assume leadership of projects, programs, teams, or organizations across sectors, fields, and national boundaries. The program readies graduates to contribute to such critical activities as organizational productivity and performance assessment; strategy formulation; operational planning; technology acquisition, planning, and integration; and human performance assessment and development. Committed to building knowledge across functional areas and contributing disciplines, the program allows for increased specialization in one of three areas: organizational processes, international operations, or technology and information systems. Finally, the program is dedicated to helping those individuals who want to continue learning and expanding their knowledge, skills, and abilities beyond the master's degree level.
