The University at Albany School of Business prepares the best and brightest students to adapt and compete in the ever-changing marketplace.

AACSB dual accreditation in business and accounting places the UAlbany School of Business in the top 2% of world's 16,000 business schools.

Highly ranked world-class faculty teach sixteen undergraduate programs in business, accounting and digital forensics, six full-time MBA options and four graduate programs in accounting. Faculty have received more than $10 million in grants and funded research – the highest among all business schools in the U.S.

Students have opportunities in experiential learning, research, entrepreneurship, and mentoring through interactions with faculty, staff and industry.

Seventeen student-run School of Business clubs and organizations, many established by students, offer extra-curricular education.

The school’s strong pipelines to the business community allow the majority of our students to be placed in jobs before graduation and have access to top executives in leading firms.

School of Business alumni become a powerful network of leaders truly shaping the business world.

The Massry Center for Business, an open and interactive, state-of-the-art LEED Gold certified facility, was named thefifth most beautiful business school in the world.
