The Whitman Difference
An undergraduate education at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management is about far more than traditional academic preparation. We offer unique opportunities for you in and out of the classroom that build a rich, individualized educational experience full of real world preparation and success.
We have your major - or majors.
Choose from accounting, finance, management, marketing, supply chain management, real estate, entrepreneurship and retail management. With this breadth of offerings, you’ll develop expertise in your field(s), and have opportunities in and out of the classroom to diversify your skill set so that you can stand out to future employers.
You'll start early.
Whitman students begin business classes in their first year and take 12 classes, taught by accomplished research faculty and seasoned practitioners, by the end of their second year. This allows you to pursue a double major within Whitman or a dual major with the Newhouse School or iSchool, significantly increasing your marketability to potential employers.
You'll be IMPRESSive to employers.
In addition to the rigorous educational experience you expect, you’ll gain the skills and experience employers seek, such as leadership and communication, through the new Goodman IMPRESS program. Using gamification and a four-“house” competitive model, students earn points while building skills for career success.
Work in a real firm.
Our firm, Consurtio, allows students the opportunity to run the internal operations of the company, as well as work on individual accounts for client businesses in Central New York and across the country. The firm offers a variety of business solutions aligned with the curriculum at the Whitman School. Whitman faculty, staff, alumni and seasoned professionals mentor the students throughout the experience.
The world is your classroom.
Half of Whitman students study abroad, and 100 percent complete at least one internship. Additional experiential learning opportunities are provided through 14 student clubs, career exploration trips, client projects, a student business start-up incubator, 11 Bloomberg terminals, and the $3.8 million student-run Orange Value Fund.
We'll help put you to work.
Whitman’s dedicated Career Center team will help you explore and prepare for careers, as well as internships and job placement.
