The IDEALs of Management – Inclusive, Dynamic, Entrepreneurial and Adaptive Leaders of Tomorrow

Students with a Management major learn how to innovate and thrive in the large, small, family-run and social purpose organizations that will shape our collective future.

Whether you plan to be a leader of tomorrow through entrepreneurship, to support the development of leadership skills in others through a career in human resource management, to specialize in organizational analysis for positive social impact or to focus on helping organizations optimize and green their operations function, the Management program at Ramapo College will help you reach your goals.
