Become a Leader in Nutrition


The Executive M.S. in Nutrition Business Leadership (MSNBL) degree is a 39-credit program offered in an online format and can be completed in as little as 15 months. The program takes place over five (5) quarters, with a 1-credit, on-campus residency occurring in the final quarter.

Students in the Executive MSNBL program gain the essential evidence-based, scientific, and business knowledge and skills that add value to their company and advance their careers. The program is designed for bright, energetic, and ambitious professionals who seek to become visionary leaders in the natural products industry.

Geared towards those on an executive-level pathway, the program trains students in the nutritional sciences, supply chain (including ingredient procurement, product manufacturing, regulations, sales, and marketing), and leadership and management—all specific to the multi-billion-dollar natural foods and dietary supplement industry. Graduates will be uniquely trained to respond to the nutrition industry’s need for evidence-based knowledge leaders who can have a positive impact on the triple bottom line: people, plant, and profit.
