Welcome to the Freeman College of Management. We are committed to advancing the boundaries of management education and providing transformative, one-of-a-kind experiences that empower the business innovators of tomorrow.

In the classroom, our students follow their passions and develop expertise in sustainable commerce, innovative design thinking, global leadership, and responsible accounting and financial management. Beyond the classroom, you'll find our students gaining experience on Wall Street, making a difference in developing economies, learning from international business leaders and assisting startups. Our leading-edge, impactful curriculum coupled with deep faculty expertise has earned the Freeman College accreditation with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, joining just 5% of universities worldwide to hold this gold standard in business education.  

As the Kenneth W. Freeman Professor & Dean, I am honored to be part of a fantastic team of faculty and staff who are passionate about providing an exceptional, student-centered learning environment. Open communication will help us ensure that Bucknell continues to be a special place, so please feel free to stop in or email me with your thoughts.
