Message from Director

Jeff Pollard, SUNY New Paltz IIB Director


Dear International Students,

We have made the difficult decision to pause our two part program we call the Institute for International Business for the Fall 2023 / Spring 2024 academic year.  The new hybrid work reality in New York has caused increased difficulty in managing our program as we have. 

We hope this is only a pause, while we work on a new model that will still bring you the dual experience of studying at a US University and working in an internship in New York City.

We will be talking to multiple parties as we work on a new model, and welcome your input if you have any.  You can contact us at

Sincerely yours,

Jeff Pollard


Director of the Institute for International Business
