Our mission is “Fostering technological entrepreneurship and innovation.”
As a part of the newly formed SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY POLY), the Department of Business Management (DBM) aims to be recognized as a premier Department of Business Management at a public polytechnic institution by utilizing our resources to provide quality programs related to teaching, scholarship, societal responsibility, leadership, and service. We will achieve this vision by continuously improving programs as guided by principles that align with and support SUNY POLY's broader vision, mission, values, and objectives. We have three strategic principles. (1) Experiential learning: Providing students with exceptional experiential learning opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom with the aim of enhancing engagement, learning, business acumen, leadership ability, and positive social purpose. In particular, we will promote management practices, infused with design thinking, to better prepare STEM students for leadership positions. (2) Innovation: Fostering the development and transmission of new research and knowledge about innovative and emerging technologies as well as state-of-the-art technology transfer and commercialization approaches. (3) Entrepreneurship: Imbuing students and the broader SUNY POLY community with the capacity and efficacy to create and grow innovative businesses and social ventures.
