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.
