As Dean of the School of Business and Management, I’m delighted that you have chosen to visit our
website. Let me welcome you by saying a few words about our program.
With approximately 1,500 students, we are one of the largest academic programs at Brockport. Our School offers a comprehensive undergraduate business education with majors or concentrations in Accounting, Finance, International Business, Management, and Marketing. We also offer minors in Accounting, Business Administration, Economics, Finance and Marketing as well as a master’s program in Accounting.
Our educational philosophy is simple. We offer our students the preparation they need to realize their dreams and to embark on meaningful careers and lives to make a difference for their organizations and communities. Our curriculum is comprised of the rigorous study of the economics and business foundations, coupled with deep study in the field in which you choose to major, drawn together by a wide range of holistic co-curricular opportunities including internships, study abroad, major area clubs and organizations and formal professional development through our Center for Student Success.
Course section sizes are relatively small (averaging 30-40 students each) with many upper division level electives much smaller. All are taught by members of our world class full-time faculty or our talented adjunct faculty members who bring years of professional experience to their teaching roles. You will never be taught by a graduate teaching assistant in the School of Business and Management.
This exclusive focus on student success has yielded some impressive results and the latest placement data for our graduates speak for themselves. Upon graduation, nearly 80% of our graduates report that they found work in their chosen field or were admitted to graduate school. Our alumni have gone on to positions in many influential companies and organizations as well as some of the most well respected graduate schools in the region.
It is little wonder then that we have been continually accredited since 2002 by AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the premier global accreditation for business schools.
Therefore, pursuing an education at our School assures a return on investment of time and resources that we are exceptionally proud of. On behalf of my faculty, staff and student colleagues, I welcome you to explore our website. If you should have any questions about our program, please feel free contact me or any of my colleagues in our School.
