Message from the Dean

Welcome from Professor Donald Siegel
Dean of the School of Business
Bio

Donald Seigel, Dean of the University at Albany School of BusinessOur world-class faculty offer high quality undergraduate and graduate programs. They are especially adept at blending their academic research into the classroom, providing hands-on educational experiences that have launched many successful careers. We are proud of our tradition of excellence and the accomplishments of our students, alumni, and faculty. Many of our alumni are top-level executives in accounting, investment banking and finance, management, marketing, and information systems. We also have a bright future. The quality of our programs continues to rise, with higher admissions standards, innovative and flexible programs for working professionals, enhanced career services, a new freshman direct admit program, and a financial analyst honors program, which resulted in the recent placement of three students at Goldman Sachs. Most notably, the state legislature recently allocated $54 million for a new School of Business building, a 90,000 square-foot state-of the-art academic and research facility. The School will be more focused on innovation and entrepreneurship, becoming more closely connected to technology-based economic development and new firm creation in the Capital Region.

I encourage you to learn more about our programs and our faculty, students, and alumni. I hope that you will make a wise investment decision: to become part of our vision to advance knowledge and practice in business.
