Message from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Business! We are an AACSB International-accredited business school, offering undergraduate degrees in Accounting, Business Administration and Economics, and a Masters in Accounting. We have outstanding faculty who provide the latest in business education, both the theory and the practical, in our classrooms.

We offer a wide range of opportunities for hands-on experience, including internships, our Entrepreneurship Program (VentureWorks), our Student-Managed Investment Fund, the Fed Challenge, the CFA Research Challenge, Adopt-A-Business and our VITA program.

We have an up to date trading room with three Bloomberg terminals, allowing students to use the latest technology, software and analytical tools available in the financial world.

We provide each student with exceptional professional development through our distinctive “PD” program, a four-year, co-curricular requirement for every student. And all of our students have the opportunity to interact with our loyal and successful alumni who live and work throughout New York State and beyond. Alumni return regularly to campus to give talks, sit in on classes and mentor students. We also run an annual Meet the Firms Trip to New York City.   

Our students go on to work at well-known firms and to graduate programs, where they use the skills and knowledge they’ve gained at Geneseo to build successful careers.

While students are involved in these curricular and co-curricular activities, they are learning in a relatively small and engaged community here in the Business School. We provide close academic advisement to students, tutoring services here in the Business school and a variety of clubs. Professors and staff know students by name and face, and are available to answer questions, provide advice or talk about whatever is important to a student.

Finally, in line with our AACSB accreditation guidelines, we emphasize innovation, engagement and impact in all that we do with our students. We give our students experience in thinking, behaving and reaching out in ways that incorporate these key characteristics.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions. You can reach me at
