Global CurrencyCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- This summer Mississippi University for Women will launch its Master of Science in Global Commerce program, which will be delivered completely online. Its purpose is to prepare graduates to manage global business operations to the benefit and competitive advantage of companies across the region.


Dr. Scott Tollison, dean of the College of Business and Professional Studies, said, this program is ideal for an individual who works for a multinational firm and has to collaborate with global partners.

“We are preparing students to understand the global environment in which they will work,” he said. “They can work and succeed in this environment without ever leaving their local community.”

One of the curriculum requirements is the student’s capstone activity that involves a Regional Studies Portfolio. During a student’s first semester, he or she must declare a region or country of the world on which to complete a portfolio. Every course, in turn, will require the student to write a portfolio paper on the declared region.

As an example, Tollison said, a student may declare Germany as his or her region or country. At the end of the program, students will collect their papers in a portfolio to be presented to the graduate faculty electronically during their graduating semester.

As a result, students will develop a mastery of one region of the world by writing a series of portfolio papers throughout the curriculum, create a portfolio unifying the curriculum and exit the program with a deliverable work product that can be presented to potential employers.

Students are required to complete 36 hours, 12 which are electives. Core courses include global telecommunications, global marketing management, systems project management, supply chain management, cross cultural management, financial management, international business law and environmental sustainability management.

“We’ve made it a multidisciplinary approach. They are getting a little bit of all of the basics,” Tollison said.

Additional requirements include the Graduate Management Admission Test, completion of prerequisite courses (all available at MUW) and an essay that focuses on the applicant’s accomplishments and professional aspirations.

Tollison said the program is designed to be completed in four semesters, while some may be able to complete in three. Students can enter the program in June, August or January. All courses will be delivered by graduate faculty.

“Time and place are no barrier to program completion,” he said.

Student NetID Password Update

MUW ITS will be implementing a new password policy for all University Student users starting Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM. The password change will be activated/required upon your next login after the enforcement has been enabled. The change will not lock or force you out if you are actively working on your computer.

If your password already meets the above requirements, you will still have to change your password once the new policy rules are officially enforced. Changing your password before Feb. 28 should be done if you have a security reason to do so, but not in response to jumping ahead of the Password Policy change date/time. Changing your password ahead of time will not negate the requirement to change it again on Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM.

After the new password policy has been enabled, Students will not be able to login to services (Portal, MUWnet WiFi, Office 365, Orgsync, etc…) that use NetID credentials until you change and update your password using the follow criteria.

MUW ITS will never ask for your NetID Password via email.
