Not Your Average Business Degree

Embrace and experience tomorrow's version of business today while earning and learning!

As the world turns and mankind enters a data-driven economy shaped by disruptive, emerging technologies, a re-imagination of business education becomes an inevitability to prepare the leadership and management of today’s transforming businesses. Our newly launched B.S. in Management (BSM) degree program reflects this call of time that enables you to integrate management acumen with technical brilliance. Similarly, our graduate programs, whether an M.B.A. or Tech M.B.A. or M.S. in Engineering Management or M.S. in Operations Management or M.S. in Supply Chain Management, develop leaders with specialization in technical disciplines.

Unlike the typical undergraduate business programs of the bygone era, our BSM degree offers distinctive, industry-specific concentrations in Innovations & Entrepreneurship, Supply Chain & Logistics Management, Business Analytics, Sustainable Solutions for Enterprise, and Technology. This century-old, unique, and seamless learning environment that entails alternating between a paid full-time co-op and project-based, action-learning opportunities in the classroom prepares you to be industry ready to innovate, connect, lead and make an impact on your world starting Day 1.

The School of Management offers five disciplines.

Advisory Boards Connect Students With Business Industry Leaders

Kettering University has named 10 business and organizational leaders, including six alumni, as part of its first ever School of Management’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB), which will complement and coordinate with the elite group of faculty-nominated student leaders who are part of the Dean’s Student Advisory Board (DSAB).

In addition to providing strategic advice and vital connections for the University community and the DSAB, the IAB will help shape forward-focused curriculum and new program development. The board will serve as a critical resource for the School of Management, including advocacy for the school; input on industry recruitment trends; feedback on academic programs; sources of student co-op and internships, mentors, and jobs; and event speakers.
