Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship Department

What We Do:

If you aspire to help a business get known or get results, the Department of Management, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship is the right place for you. You’ll learn the most up-to-date approaches and gain the opportunity to put them into practice, with courses emphasizing globalization, technology and ethical decision-making.

We encourage a strategic, sustainable approach to business that weighs all decisions against the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.

How We Stand Out:

  • Dedicated faculty who are personally engaged with students
  • Higher number of adjuncts than any other department, bringing practical business experience right into the classroom
  • Valuable connections with alumni and other business leaders through the President’s Business Council, the Executive-in-Residence Program, the Dean’s Advisory Council, and other events
  • Integration of technical skills into the curriculum
  • A Jesuit emphasis on ethical decision-making
  • Experiential learning inside the classroom and out
  • Leadership opportunities, including the Business Leadership Honors Program

At Scranton, we teach students to think holistically – to think beyond themselves.

Meet Our Faculty:

While our faculty members are experts in diverse areas of business, they are share a common goal of putting students first. Professors know their students personally and interact with them both inside and outside of the classroom, striking the balance of providing a challenge while offering support.

At the same time, they are also recognized for their world-class research and real-world experience. For example:

Dr. Robert Giambatista, has published his research on team effectiveness and leadership in some of management’s most prestigious journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Management Science, Leadership Quarterly and Academy of Management Learning & Education.
