Hobart and William Smith students and graduates, and students and graduates from our partner school Wells College, who are interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Management program should contact Prof. Tom Drennen to discuss the program and how it may align with your goals.

  • – HWS and Wells graduates should consider the 4+1 option, with matriculation in the fall semester.
  • – Classes of 2022 and 2023 should consider the 4+1 option, with matriculation in the fall semester post-graduation.
  • – Classes of 2024, 2025 and 2026 can consider the traditional 4+1 option in which students complete their bachelor’s degree and then move on to the MSM. You may also opt for the accelerated 3+1 option which allows motivated HWS students to complete both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees concurrently in four years. Students interested in this option should apply during their sophomore year to ensure proper advising to complete both degrees in four years.


Interested students from non-partner schools are welcome to apply for the one-year program and will be expected to complete a formal application, including submitting either GRE or GMAT scores, and 2-3 letters of recommendation. International students from non-English-speaking programs will be required to submit TOEFL scores.

Any student without an introductory economics course will be required to take a summer course prior to the start of the MSM.
