Chair’s Welcome

On behalf of faculty, staff and students I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Keene State College Department of Management. Our dedicated faculty strives to create a learning environment which challenges students’ by stimulating their curiosity, creativity and critical thinking.  At Keene State College, students benefit directly from the close relationships they developed with faculty in the classroom, through advising and in research opportunities. Students have an opportunity to work with faculty on projects such as the department’s Applied Organizational Research Project, the Transportation Study, and the Financial Planning Center.  In addition, students can take advantage of opportunities to work directly with business leaders in the community by way of our award winning Small Business Institute, our Small Business Development Center, and our Internship program.  Department sponsored clubs such as the Society for the Advancement of Management and Students in Free Enterprise further increase involvement.

The Department also encourages students to consider multidisciplinary options including Construction Management, Sustainable Product Design, and Innovation and a myriad of other exciting choices.  In addition, International Study is both encouraged and supported.

The Department of Management is committed to providing students with the highest quality undergraduate program by emphasizing excellence in teaching, scholarship, and community service.  Our goal is to prepare students with the knowledge and skills necessary for assuming leadership roles in the 21st century global economy.  We emphasize management skills that build upon a solid foundation in the arts and sciences. Our program is designed to prepare students for management careers in a wide variety of private, public and non-profit organizations as well as for advanced study at the graduate level.

Finally, we are proud of our alumni and their accomplishments. Our students develop communication, quantitative, analytical, technical, collaborative, and team building skills essential for successful leadership.
