Hi, Masters in Management Degree Programs are usually the Master of Science in Management (MSc). These programs are postgraduate studies for people who have recently finished their undergraduate studies and want to enhance their knowledge on a deeper and more scientific level.
Master in Management students do not have professional experience but need to be attractive to businesses after their graduation with a Master of Science, in-company projects or internships offered by business schools as part of the program mitigate this problem.

Master of Business Administration (MBA): These programs, in contrast, focus on people with a minimum of three years of professional experience. But both types of Masters are postgraduate management programs.

The degree Master of Business Administration is neither a Master of Science nor of Arts but a Master title of its own. It is often abbreviated as MBA or M.B.A. and in contrast to the Master of Science (MSc) or the Master of Arts (MA) it clearly points to one program only.
