Important Information About how the Master’s in Management Science Online Works


The MS in Management Science offers four tracks (business analytics, information technology management, project management and consulting) and 15 concentrations; however, the online program does not offer every course available as an on-campus course. For a fully online MS in Management Science degree, you are limited to the courses listed on this page and any new online courses that may be added in the future.

Guaranteed Availability

In most cases, the online courses will be offered in the semesters listed on the JSOM Online Courses page year after year. However, sometimes the instructor who teaches a specific online course will be unavailable in a given semester. In those cases, you may have to pick another course if you are selecting an elective. If you are selecting a required course and trying to graduate that semester, the program director can work with you to look at options.

Prerecorded Sessions

Online courses may have prerecorded sessions that you can access from anywhere, anytime — including internationally.


Every course is different, but most courses have timed online exams, and some online courses require that the final exam be taken at a proctored exam center. The proctored exam center selected by a student must be approved by our testing center; there are numerous national and international testing locations. For more information on the availability of proctored exams, please visit the Testing Center pages or call 972-883-2460.

Remote testing

Students who find UT Dallas geographically inconvenient may use a testing service of their choice, but it must be approved by the UT Dallas testing center.
