Like so much else in the world, today’s global business environment is evolving. New industries, new strategies, new challenges; the business world is fast-paced and fast-changing. But there remains a constant: That ever-evolving business world still needs strong leaders. And that’s what you’ll learn in Keuka College’s Business Management Degree program: the art and science of leadership.

Program Highlights

An Internship Every Year

Real-world, hands-on experience is an important part of your Business Management degree. Every year, beginning your first year, you’ll design a Field Period® experience that could take you into an investment firm, a professional sports team’s front office, a bank, or city hall – anyplace where real-world business decisions are made. You’ll work alongside industry professionals, learning all that goes into leading a successful operation.

A Variety of Options

You can personalize and customize your degree by selecting minors. Among the varied, résumé-enhancing options: accounting, finance, international business, marketing, sports management, or human resources.

Option to Earn Two Degrees in Four Years

Advance your career further, faster, by completing your bachelor’s degree in three years and using the fourth year to complete a master’s degree in a management field. In the same amount of time you planned to earn your bachelor’s degree, you can graduate with a master’s degree in hand, giving you a competitive edge in the marketplace.

My Field Period® introduced me to the world of Business Management in an industry with many moving parts—all of which rely on each other to make the whole resort run effectively and profitably. My first foray into the world of field experience at Keuka College was one in which I learned, grew, and determined that I had made the right decision in my college choice.
