Start A Real Company, Earning Real Profits, in Your First or Second Year

Management 101 — a groundbreaking experiential course pioneered at Bucknell — empowers students to form real companies that work to benefit local charities. In it, you'll be charged with organizing your enterprise from the ground up. You'll make decisions about leadership, develop a product and sell it on behalf of clients that count on your business to support their charitable works. Management majors typically take Management 101 as first-year students or sophomores, so you'll be immersed in a challenging — some say life-altering — experience that will deepen your experience from the very start of your Bucknell education.
