Management and Entrepreneurship
Students in the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship at Hofstra University learn how to manage people and functions in all types of organizations, from tiny start-ups to multinational corporations. You will get a broad-based education in the theory and practice of human resources, operations, leadership, and supply chains while learning how to explore, recognize and develop new ventures.
The Department of Management and Entrepreneurship provides students with:
- The opportunity to study with professors who are committed to teaching and research, as well as having deep professional experience in their area of expertise.
- The chance to work with a team of student entrepreneurs to launch a new venture. These businesses are funded by Capital One, where bankers serve as mentors throughout the academic year.
- Active student clubs including Hofstra Start-Ups, the Society for Advancement of Management, and APICS – The Association for Operations Management, which host speaker forums and panels, and networking opportunities with successful alumni. These clubs also field student teams for national competitions.

Elli Reid, a junior management major from Texas, spent six weeks living and working in China last summer. Even though she didn’t know the language. Even though she’d never traveled outside the U.S before. Oh - and then there was the bungee-jumping, even though she’s afraid of heights.
