Why Management & Innovation?

Leaders at every level, from all types of enterprises—including business startups, established corporations, nonprofits and government—are looking for managers who come with fresh ideas and insights.

Successful innovators thrive by their ability to drive change and influence others. As a Management & Innovation major, you will become an inventive, flexible, resourceful problem-solver and design thinker who will be able to create positive change in a variety of workplace roles: employee, team member, manager or entrepreneur. 

Why Management & Innovation at Champlain?

While many schools offer majors, minors and courses in the broad fields of business, management and entrepreneurship, none combines these in a way that emphasizes the conscious application of creativity, design thinking, innovation and change management.

Through the course content, the project-based learning and internships in the Managing & Innovation program, you will also acquire the strategic thinking and collaboration skills needed to build effective partnerships where innovation can flourish.
