The School of Business at the State University of New York at New Paltz is committed to educating and developing students to be competent business professionals in a global economy. Teaching is our primary mission, which is complemented by our commitments to acquire and apply knowledge through scholarly and professional activities, and to serve our colleagues in the academic and business communities.

As the only residential public university in the mid-Hudson region, we are committed to providing access to a quality education for a diverse student population. The undergraduate programs in business are grounded in a broad-based liberal arts and science education, and serve students drawn primarily from the mid-Hudson region and the greater New York metropolitan area, together with international students representing various countries. Our graduate students, both local and international, seek to advance their professional careers. A diverse group of faculty brings academic qualifications and professional expertise to the classroom. Our scenic Hudson Valley location between Albany and New York City provides students with internship and employment prospects, and gives faculty opportunities for professional development.

In carrying out our mission, we seek to:

• Improve the School's reputation

• Provide quality academic programs

• Support the faculty's active engagement in scholarship

• Improve processes related to student selection and support

• Foster linkages with the business community

The School of Business aspires to be the business resource hub of the Mid-Hudson Valley region.
