Mary Ellen Mastrorilli - Strategic Management Concentration


Boston University’s Metropolitan College recently introduced a new concentration and certificate entitled “Strategic Management in Criminal Justice.” The rationale behind creating the Strategic Management in Criminal Justice certificate and concentration really goes back to the fact that in criminal justice, we can no longer do business the way we’ve been doing it.

We all know that criminal justice is far more complex today than it was ten, fifteen, twenty years ago. It has to do with planning, it has to do with sound decision-making, it has to do with understanding the organization and the environment around the organization; so all of that is part of Strategic Management. So our students will better understand all of the nuts and bolts that go into how to plan policies, programs, and even pilot projects.
