Freeman College of Management

At Bucknell's Kenneth W. Freeman College of Management, real learning comes from real experiences. Inside and outside the classroom, we empower our students to innovate and experiment by immersing them in the real business landscape of today. Our students explore their futures by going inside the New York Stock Exchange and Silicon Valley's leading tech firms, starting their own companies with Bucknell seed money, and managing a portion of the University's endowment valued in the millions. These experiences — and the powerful network they build along the way — are one reason our graduates are highly sought after by the world's leading companies.

I didn’t believe it when people said it could happen, but I knew at first sight that Bucknell was right for me. Following that feeling has been one of my greatest decisions so far.
