    Lally's interdisciplinary environment prepares students for the core elements that are critical to business success: leadership, critical decision making, relationships and teamwork, quantitative analysis, and computational skills.

    Coursework in management emphasizes fundamental skills in finance, marketing, human behavior, computing, and information technology, among others. Skills in quantitative analysis are further developed through core courses in strategy, statistics, mathematics, and science.

    Students are encouraged to pursue a concentration by taking an additional sequence of courses within the management curriculum. All concentrations focus on the application of analytical methods and well-reasoned decision making to an area of business management. 


    The accounting concentration provides the conceptual framework and the analytical skills required for the understanding of general accounting practices. Students learn how to measure, analyze, and provide quantitative information that is used by managers, governments, investors, and analysts. 


    The business analytics concentration focuses on using information to develop business insights and influence decision-making in organizations. This set of courses provides a strong foundation in analytical modeling and statistical methods as well as skills in data management. It provides hands-on experience through industry projects in applying these skills in data and model-driven decision making in specific business domains such as marketing, supply chain management, and finance.


    The entrepreneurship concentration focuses on the process through which innovative ideas are converted to new products and businesses. This helps prepare students to think “outside the box.” These courses will further develop students’ ability to think creatively, solve business problems, and convert ideas into solutions for the marketplace. Students gain planning and project management skills that are useful in start-ups and established firms alike.


    The finance concentration provides students with a strong foundation in the concepts of risk and return, asset allocation, portfolio management, bond and stock valuation, investment decision making, capital budgeting, derivatives, and risk management. This concentration offers an excellent opportunity for students to prepare for the Chartered Financial Analyst exam


    The international management concentration prepares students to lead in this increasingly globalized world. The course work grounds students in the financial, economic, and political underpinnings of globalization. The insights gained in these courses are reinforced in the many international modules in the required core courses of the undergraduate degree program.


    The management information systems concentration, like a major, focuses on the use of information technology for value creation in new and established firms. It provides students with the perspectives and skills to understand the role of IT in organizations, identify opportunities for IT-enabled business innovations, and design, develop, and deliver the technology infrastructures that enable firms to effectively use IT for value creation.


    The marketing concentration, like a major, provides students with an understanding of what customers want and how to effectively offer products and services to meet this demand. Marketing activities, including product research and concept testing, are explored. Students learn how businesses need marketing to reach and serve customers in order to successfully achieve their goals or mission – whether these are maximizing sales and profits, promoting non-profit organizations, or advancing social causes.


    The supply chain management concentration focuses on the design and management of supply chains in manufacturing and service industries. This concentration equips students with the perspectives and skills to design supply chains, develop strategies to optimize supply chain operations, and identify opportunities for deploying IT to create effective demand fulfillment capabilities in firms.

    While the Lally B.S. in Business & Management curriculum emphasizes fundamental business skills we want our students to excel in quantitative and computer skills and be reflective about their choices, creative and innovative in their problem solving, and informed of global/societal issues.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.



    All applications are reviewed individually by the admissions committee. It is important to note that some differences in preparation and academic background may be considered.  The applicants who are best suited for Rensselaer will have completed

    • Four years of English
    • Four years mathematics through pre-calculus
    • Three years of science (including chemistry and physics)
    • Three years of social studies and/or history

    Additionally, the admissions committee pays particular attention to candidates who demonstrate qualities of leadership and talents that will contribute to the richness of the Rensselaer community.

    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for all non-native English speakers. Applicants who have completed three or more years of secondary education in the U.S. may request an exemption by emailing Rensselaer Admissions. Rensselaer expects a minimum TOEFL score of at least 88 iBT, or 570 PBT. For students not able to take the TOEFL, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or the Pearson’s Test of English (PTE) may be substituted for the TOEFL. An IELTS score of at least 7.0 or a PTE score of at least 59 is expected. Only the academic format is accepted.
