Lesley Business Management majors gain a competitive advantage by completing more than 200 hours of experiential learning in complex organizations, such as the Attorney General's Office, WGBH, and the Longwood Symphony Orchestra.
And their hard work pays off—92% of Lesley students land a job within 6 months of graduation.
Creativity—it’s the mark of every great innovator. It’s what inspires you to follow your own passions down paths that haven’t been discovered. To look at problems from unseen perspectives. And to generally march to the beat of your own drum. That's what you'll learn how to do at Lesley.
You'll start thinking like an entrepreneur while exploring ways to foster change in existing organizations. Then, you’ll develop and run your own business. Then you’ll do it again. This time during your senior year, backed by everything you’ve learned in the classroom and everything you've made happen in the real world.
If you're the go-getter type (and we know you are), you're already wondering about grad school. Good news: You can earn your bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 5 years through our dual degree program.
You'll specialize in general management, nonprofit management, or human resources management. Open doors to a wider range of career opportunities right after graduation. And save time and money on graduate tuition.
Our liberal arts curriculum is designed to provide you with the foundation you need to be successful. From there, you can choose to double major in any subject across the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or College of Art and Design, select from 30+ minors, or pursue an optional specialization within your Business Management major.
