“To be a program of distinction and a SUNY college of choice for high quality business and accounting education.”


We enroll highly capable students and develop their ability to excel in professional careers and graduate studies by offering outstanding programs in a collegial community that fosters learning. We attract and develop outstanding faculty by rewarding exceptional teaching and scholarship. This is accomplished through the following:

  • Offering AACSB-accredited programs distinguished by their quality, variety, academic rigor, and small class sizes; 
  • Maintaining faculty expertise and currency through engagement in research that advances the theory, practice and teaching of business as well as professional activities, including contribution of school expertise to industry and regional stakeholders;
  • Maintaining a mutually respectful and collegial environment that encourages service to college and community and a genuine faculty and staff interest in student success;
  • Preparing our students for successful careers by offering our students career planning and professional skills development and providing a wide variety of internships and study abroad opportunities; 
  • Facilitating and supporting opportunities for global engagement by faculty, staff, and students; and
  • Maintaining a liberal arts foundation in all our curricula that emphasizes ethics, critical thinking, and personal and social responsibility.
