Start a Real Organization, Serving a Real Nonprofit, in Your First or Second Year
In Management 101 — a groundbreaking experiential course pioneered at Bucknell — students form real social enterprises, partnering with local non-profit organizations to create and implement meaningful community service projects. You'll develop crucial skills in delegation, communication, collaboration and supervision as you design and sell a product to fund your service project. Management majors typically take Management 101 in their first or second year, giving you real-world experience in responsible management from the very beginning.
Internships that Make a Difference
At Bucknell's Freeman College of Management, we don't just bring the real world into the classroom, we help our students gain experience in the real world. Global management and managing for sustainability majors have secured internships with firms including Mount Sinai Medical Center, CRBE, Save the Children, Deloitte Consulting and the Harlem Children's Zone. These experiences and the skills they gain in the classroom are what prepare our graduates to thrive in careers at the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Accenture, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Newman's Own Foundation, Amazon, Yelp and other organizations.
