When you arrive at the University at Albany School of Business, the first thing you’ll see is our stunning new 96,000 square foot School of Business building on the imposing “Academic Podium” grounds of the campus center.

The new building is a boon to students and faculty. It houses all of our business management undergraduate and graduate programs, except for the Weekend MBA program, which is held at executive offices off-campus.

The new building is a proud testament to the School of Business’ central role in New York’s fast-growing Tech Valley, the epicenter of the global semiconductor industry and a hotbed of R&D, business, and entrepreneurial activity. It will house cutting-edge classrooms, support innovative research, and host collaborative programming with business leaders from every industry.
