Keuka College’s management major offers you a broad overview in business, management, and leadership.
The base of your degree will include courses in accounting, business law, strategic management, business computer applications, economics, finance, marketing, human resources, and statistics.
You can personalize and customize your degree by selecting a concentration that interests you most. You can choose from accounting, entrepreneurship, international business, marketing, sports management, or human resources.
Hands-on experience is integrated throughout all of your business courses. You’ll have classes that include:
