Business and Management

The mission of Keuka College’s Division of Business and Management is the preparation of its students for leadership roles in a wide-range of domestic and global organizational environments. In each of our traditional and non-traditional programs we create a unique educational experience that combines a solid liberal arts foundation for learning and critical thinking skills, a proactive program of experiential opportunities and related co-curricular activities, and a solid professional foundation in each of the critical business disciplines, all of which are rooted in ethics and integrity.

We focus on the skills and knowledge that will set students apart, while positioning them for success after graduation. Our curriculum combines critical thinking skills, real world experience, and a solid integration of international business. All faculty instructors highlight current business practices and bring top-notch business professionals into the classroom to share real-world problems and solutions.

The Field Period™ is Keuka College’s signature experiential learning method of ensuring that students can put into practice many of the theories and skills that they are learning through their coursework. These four practical experiences that students undertake while at Keuka College help to develop an extremely rich and beneficial network of useful contacts that students can tap into upon graduation. Students will build a resume of experiences while still in college.

The Division of Business and Management also offers a Masters of Science in Management degree with a strong international business emphasis. This program is offered in both an online format or a one-year face-to-face on campus format.

If Accounting is your degree of choice, Keuka College has agreements with RIT Syracuse University, and SUNY Geneseo for either a Masters of Accountancy program or an MBA with a CPA track. This will allow for students to complete the necessary 150 credit requirement for licensure qualification.

Instruction within the Division of Business and Management will include the following:

  • Numerous team-building experiences, which will provide skills that elevate the effectiveness of student interactions with others.
  • Projects and activities that strengthen communication and presentation skills.
  • Visits to business and industry locations to witness first-hand how successful organizations operate.
  • Professionally qualified and experienced faculty who are accessible and invested in the success of students.
  • Small class sizes, taught by full-time faculty and not teacher assistants.
  • Numerous guest speakers with strong subject matter expertise that can inject and reinforce real-world applicability into the classroom.
