No matter where you work—start-up, small business, corporate, government, non-profit—you need a set of critical management skills to be successful in today’s diverse global environment. We asked hiring managers and accomplished alumni what our students needed to thrive in their careers and created a program based on their input.  As a result, Siena’s management program is relevant, engaging, and flexible. You will learn and practice skills that apply to the changing world:

  • Thinking like an entrepreneur
  • Managing complex projects
  • Communicating with confidence
  • Energizing a team toward high performance
  • Making informed decisions.

You will learn to use your talents to serve not just your employer, but society as a whole. Finish our program and start your own company, work in the public or private sectors, and join a not-for-profit or pursue graduate education. You'll have the skills you need to succeed. 


Siena's management major includes the option to complete 12 credits in elective courses, or select a specialized management track. 

The tracks are designed for students whose career goals are focused in a particular management specialty (entrepreneurship, human resources, leadership, or strategy) or particular management context (international business or project management).

Prepare for the real world

Learn critical competencies that apply to any position in any organization.  Develop a unique perspective on people, organizations, and the world by integrating your Franciscan and liberal arts education with the management competencies.  Learn to do your work while always working to make the world a better place.  And, gain additional expertise in any of the following concentrations:
