AQ Difference

Get Started Right Away.   Tailor Your Learning.
No matter what your undergraduate degree, you can start working toward your graduate degree right away. While the AQ M.M. degree program has no course-specific prerequisites, we do require that enrolling students have two years of management experience. In your company or organization, you’ve always pushed yourself to lead. Now surround yourself with classmates who’ve done the same.
A Home For Your Big Ideas.
Just two miles from downtown Grand Rapids, the state-of-the-art Jarecki Center for Advanced Learning is home for AQ M.M. classes. The facility is both student-friendly and eco-friendly (complete with a solar energy roof). Designed with the adult-learner in mind, its classrooms and ample learning spaces will make you – and your biggest ideas – feel right at home.
Pace Yourself.
The M.M. degree requires a minimum of 39 semester hours or 13 courses. Students complete the degree in as few as 16 months or take as long as seven years from their first registration.
Degree concentrations let you follow your interests and specialize your knowledge base.

“In my career, it’s been leadership development that’s

made the difference, and that’s what this degree really gave me.”

“An MBA wouldn’t have been the right fit for me. At work, I manage processes and people. The Aquinas M.M. gave me the tools to do this.”
