Management Department at Providence College

There are leaders—and then there are leaders who graduated from PC. The difference is clear: our students don’t just learn key management skills. They discover themselves, surface their purpose and passions, and build their own capabilities. They lean into their strengths and embrace challenges with a growth mindset. Management majors explore their passion and purpose, improve their wellbeing, and develop the competency to create transformational change in themselves, as well as their teams, organizations, and even societies.

Bachelor of Science in Management

The undergraduate management major curriculum is integrated with Providence College’s liberal arts core curriculum, enhancing students’ ability to contribute to a business environment that is becoming increasingly diverse. The management major curriculum helps students increase their self-understanding and develop interpersonal, analytical, and strategic thinking skills to prepare them to be effective team members today and transformative leaders tomorrow. Our curriculum not only helps students build skills to secure their first job after graduation, but also to cultivate the passion and distinctive capabilities they need to thrive throughout their careers and lives.
