Learn to lead and transform businesses in a digital world.
Twenty-first-century businesses need well-rounded graduates with multiple areas of expertise as the world becomes increasingly digital. The interdisciplinary, experiential approach to business education offered at Lally prepares students in key areas vital to today’s business success, including leadership, critical decision-making, relationships and teamwork, quantitative analysis, and computational skills.
Coursework in business and management emphasizes fundamental skills in finance, marketing, human behavior, computing, and information technology, among others. Quantitative analysis skills are strengthened through core courses in strategy, statistics, mathematics, and science. Classes in Lally – whether core or electives – remain small and focused to permit students to really delve into material and cases and extract the most salient content. Additionally, the program curriculum is streamlined in a way that enables students to choose a minor or a second major to add additional value to their degree.
Students who graduate with a bachelor’s degree in business and management enter the workforce with relevant experience. All students enrolled in the program complete an internship to enrich the classroom experience and frequently engage with business operators as part of regular coursework to further apply their skills. As part of their education, all Rensselaer students also participate in The Arch, a unique educational format that enables students to grow and challenge themselves during a semester “away” from campus.
