Seeking Recommendations - MS Online Programs
Hello everyone,
I have been working in food & pharma in roles of manufacturing manager, quality engineer and quality manager for 18 years.  I am finally ready to pursue my Master's degree and am seeking your recommendations for online programs.  I got my Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering in 2003.

I am aware of the Quality Management MS program at EMU, but looking for a possibly more competitive program.  I have applied to the Engineering Management program at Vanderbilt, but honestly, my preference is for a program that is more specifically focused on Quality Management.

Your thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Nova Southeastern University has a unique MBA program offering a concentration in Process Improvement that prepares you for the PMI CAPM/PMP as well as the ASQ CSSBB exam.  Details here:  feel free to follow directly with me, I designed and teach in that program.

Thank you!  I'll check into it.
Hello Melissa,
I am very glad that yo are trying to pursue a Master's degree in quality assurance. I would recommend that you check out Masters of Science in Quality Assurance (MSQA) program at California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH).
The program has been run since 1992 and is very well known. If you need any help please let me know.
Melissa Watkins‍ I second this recommendation. I received my MSQA in 2011 from CSUDH and had a great experience. Feel free to send any questions my way if you are interested. Good Luck on your MS journey!
