The Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University in upstate New York works in tandem with the Department of Defense to train the comptrollers tasked with managing the finances of the country’s largest government agency. Graduates of the Defense Comptrollership program earn an M.B.A. and an executive master of public administration by taking courses such as government contracting, financial accounting, and business strategy and human capital.
Admission to the defense comptrollership program is mostly limited to active and reserve military officers, but Whitman’s other master’s degree programs are open to a wider range of applicants. In addition to full-time and distance M.B.A. programs, the school offers the following master of science degrees: accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, supply chain, and media management. These M.S. degree subjects are also concentration areas for M.B.A. students.
Full-time M.B.A. students can also pursue a joint degree from any school within the university, or devote their time outside of the classroom to case competitions, consulting, or community engagement. The South Side Entrepreneurial Connect Project at Whitman aims to support new ventures via consulting, microfinancing, training, and infrastructure building.
Notable graduates from Syracuse’s Whitman School of Management include the school’s dean, Melvin Stith; Daniel D’Aniello, founder of global asset management group The Carlyle Group; and former New Hampshire Gov. Craig Benson.
