Student Jason Kahn (BSBA’09) on the undergraduate experience Jason discusses some of the key components of SMG’s undergraduate program: teamwork, management as a system, and hands-on learning.

And because businesses don’t exist in a vacuum, the School of Management is dedicated to creating value for the world, and infuses discussions of law, social responsibility, and ethics throughout the curriculum. You’ll also have a broad exposure to liberal arts and sciences, which teach you to approach problems from multiple directions, and to view any opportunity with a view toward social, political, economic, and environmental considerations.

We’re looking  for bright, well-rounded students: students with ambition, solid analytical skills, and leadership potential.

  • Firm grounding in liberal arts
  • Immediate immersion in the study of management
  • Exposure to case studies of actual businesses
