Business Management

Life with meaning.

Prof. Susan Vowels, Dept. ChairProf. Susan Vowels, Dept. Chair

That’s the literal translation of 生意 (sheng-yi), the Chinese word for business.

And that’s our approach to teaching business management as a liberal art.

We engage students. You’ll share ideas with classmates, work closely with expert faculty, and get your hands on real-world tools like SAP (all our majors learn how to use it). You can invest a half million dollars in socially responsible businesses in the Brown Advisory Student-Managed Investment Fund. And you can learn how to build your own business from the ground up. 

It’s your dream, and we want you to dream big—like our Brown Advisory students Ryan Leigh, Audrey Utchen, Jonathan Wendeborn, and Shreyas Suresh, back from attending Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. We’re here to help them—and you—make your dream real.
