Business Management


Business management is Keene State’s business program. Dedicated faculty challenges students by stimulating their curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking. Multidisciplinary opportunities in management complement the college’s liberal arts perspective. Students are encouraged to combine coursework in the sciences, social sciences, professional studies, arts and humanities, and study abroad with a major in management. Second majors and minors in other areas are often combined with business management majors.

Program Options

Business management majors at Keene State may choose a specialization in marketing, human resources management, or sport management. In all three options, students take at least four courses in their area of focus. Additionally, Keene State offers minors in marketing and human resource management.

Internship and co-operative education opportunities are offered to business management majors in a wide variety of for profit and nonprofit settings. These programs provide part-time and full-time opportunities for students to apply their classroom learning in structured workplace settings. Through participation in these programs, students gain valuable career related work experience while earning college credit. The Business Management Department has ongoing relationships with area employers who are committed to providing interesting and challenging assignments designed to meet the needs of both intern and employer.

Business management programs are enhanced by curricular and co-curricular offerings designed to foster student engagement and reward academic excellence. The Small Business Institute (SBI), Delta Mu Delta (DMD), and Enactus give students opportunities to broaden their horizons and deepen their skills.
