"I believe that the new Master of Management Studies graduates will have a significant competitive advantage over undergraduate candidates, providing business leaders a more experienced, entry level asset. The Duke MMS program is a perfect complement to the innovative Duke MBA programs, and will greatly enhance the university's appeal as a one-stop solution for a rapidly changing global business community. Once again, Duke raises the bar and reaffirms its role as a world class business school."


Recent students and former Dean Blair Sheppard share their thoughts on Fuqua's MMS: FOB program.

Where Passion Meets Purpose

Your passion got you this far, now it's time to begin your career. Taught by the same world-class professors that teach our MBA students, our 10-month Master of Management Studies: Foundations of Business (MMS: FOB) program is a jumpstart into the business world and a leg up on the graduating competition.

In less than a year, you'll be prepared to enter the field of finance, marketing, consulting, or general management. Your knowledge of the fundamentals of strategy, decision analysis, management, accounting, marketing, operations, and finance will make you more attractive to hiring managers and give you the skills to hit the ground running once you've landed a position.

When passion meets purpose, there's no telling how far you can go. An MMS degree from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business can take you there. Are you ready?
