Isenberg’s management department simulates the real-world challenges you’ll face on the job so you’ll be ready to tackle any complex issue thrown your way.  Our faculty challenge students to answer questions about how theory applies to the real world through experiential learning.



The Berthiaume Center for Entrepreneurship plays a central role promoting entrepreneurship and innovation across the UMass Amherst campus. Headquartered in the Isenberg School of Management, the Center is a cross-campus network of scholars, innovators, and entrepreneurs, with a three-fold mission of supporting research, education, and practice, all targeted at facilitating the transformation of ideas into business realities.
