Rhode Island College School of Management (SOM) is located in historic Providence, a scenic city rich in cultural and recreational amenities. The 180-acre suburban campus and state-of-the-art high-tech business school affords students superb educational opportunities.

Currently over 1,300 students major in our undergraduate business programs. See http://www.ric.edu/som/undergrad.php for a complete listing of majors. 

Business programs are grounded in a liberal arts education, and students build the knowledge and skills associated with their major upon a broad business core foundation. The programs are practical in nature and emphasize the application of theory. The understanding and use of technology is integrated throughout the curriculum, with special attention given to the development of communication and team skills as well as the cultivation of ethical and global perspectives. 

The SOM has a well-established internship program and has placed interns in over 50 leading companies ranging from Fidelity Investments to the New England Patriots. Student organizations also provide valuable experience along with the chance to have fun and develop strong friendships.  For example, the student chapter of the American Marketing Association annually participates and competes at the national meeting, usually held in New Orleans.

Mission Statement

Consistent with the mission of Rhode Island College, The School of Management is committed to being a premier teaching institution in southern New England in providing the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help students attain their lifelong learning and professional goals. The school develops and supports a highly qualified faculty dedicated to teaching excellence enriched through professional development, scholarly activity, and service.  We provide an ethically based, technologically sophisticated, culturally inclusive environment that nurtures contemporary and innovative learning.  Our accounting, computer information systems, economics, finance, health care administration, management and marketing majors are grounded in a liberal arts foundation and deliver programs that meld theory and application.  We strive for student-centered continuous improvement and aspire to contribute meaningfully to the learning communities of the college and the region.

We have a long history of being an innovative and creative manufacturing solutions provider.

Founded in 1883 as Hope Webbing Company in Pawtucket, RI, USA, today Hope Global has grown to an 650-person, world-wide manufacturer that prides itself on providing not only high-quality products and components but also innovative manufacturing solutions to meet our customers’ needs. We take the word “Global” in our name literally as we have facilities in the USA, Mexico, Czech Republic, China and Brazil allowing us to provide customers with mirror manufacturing for faster distribution and the most cost-effective production. Today our list of manufacturing capabilities include, among other processes: braiding, weaving, knitting and wire draw, cut and sew, and assemblies.

Over the years, while manufacturing has continually improved, matured, modernized and utilized technology, one thing that has remained constant at Hope Global is our goal of being a business partner to our customers rather than just a manufacturing vendor. Every decision we make is based on making a positive impact on our customers’ business. That means being driven to get it done (whatever “it” is) no matter what it takes. For example, as a privately held company, we have a faster route to capital and a willingness to invest in our customers’ needs. Over the years we’ve invested in proprietary machine capabilities, manufacturing processes, new materials and our workforce. That’s what manufacturing business partners do: We put customers’ needs first.
