MISSION STATEMENT

We educate our students to be ethical professionals and leaders, who can meet the demands of a changing global business environment.

In this mission, we are guided by our values of honesty and integrity, and gather strength from our culture of openness and cooperation. We dedicate ourselves to teaching, and enrich our classes with knowledge and expertise gained through our passion for scholarly and professional activities. We are part of the only residential public university in the mid-Hudson Valley, and offer quality business education for a diverse group of students from the surrounding region, the New York metropolitan area, and many countries around the world. Our undergraduate programs, grounded in a broad-based liberal arts and sciences tradition, offer the academic foundation students need to pursue business careers, while our masters programs teach students the knowledge and skills required for professional growth in business.

We provide valuable services that support our students, and our proximity to New York City presents students with convenient access to regional, national, and international internships and employment. We work together with business people, student organizations and the local community toward mutually beneficial and worthy goals.

As the School of Business, we are committed to the continuous advancement of our School, and we aspire to be the business resource hub of the Mid-Hudson Valley region.
