    The Learning Environment

    Courses in the program are delivered by highly qualified faculty using instructional approaches that ensure the learning outcomes of each course. Students take a series of prerequisite courses early in their academic careers that serve as a foundation for the upper-level core curriculum. There are upper-level core requirements that cut across multiple management disciplines providing a comprehensive understanding and application of contemporary management practices. Many courses are project-based integrating case studies. The capstone course offers academic training with real-world exposure through experiential learning.

    Several of the courses are delivered via Digital Access or in lecture halls, while the other half average 45 students. Recitations that accompany core courses are taught by teaching assistants in class sizes of approximately 30 or less. The class size for additional required concentration courses typically average 45 students. A concentration is not required, but all students must complete a minimum of three 300 or 400-level management courses beyond the core courses.

    About Our Facilities

    The Jacobs Management Center and the adjacent Alfiero Center offer a complete home for management students, faculty and staff. Together, they are among only a few buildings at UB that commingle classrooms and offices, creating an interactive community of professionals, students and scholars. The School has a computer lab with exclusive access for School of Management students.

    There are nine student breakout rooms each outfitted with a large monitor for displaying laptop content. There are numerous tables and work spaces throughout the three floors of the atrium for group work, studying, networking, and socializing with peers. Take a virtual tour.

    The Undergraduate Learning and Community Center includes classrooms, a community area, tutoring facilities and a group study area — all dedicated exclusively to our undergraduates, with technology throughout to enhance student experiences. The new center offers a bright, colorful space dedicated exclusively, to help undergrads feel at home in the School of Management.

    About Our Faculty

    The faculty of the program consists of ladder faculty and clinical faculty. Both types of faculty have the highest academic degree required for their appointment. Ladder faculty members hold doctoral degrees and maintain an active research record by publishing in the top and leading academic journals in their area of expertise. Clinical faculty members hold one or several professional certificates (e.g., CPA) in addition to academic degrees required for their appointment. Academically qualified clinical faculty also publish in their area of expertise. Our faculty frequently attend conferences, workshops, and other professional meetings to update their knowledge and develop professional networks. Our faculty is actively engaged in mentoring students (e.g., serving as faculty advisor of student clubs and coaching student teams in case competition) and ensuring a high-quality learning environment.

    This expertise enables them to illustrate the theoretical side of business concepts and bring them to life with practical industry examples. Our faculty's commitment to teaching, along with their contacts, availability and friendliness, makes them a powerful and highly approachable resource for our students.
