As a business school at a flagship public research university, we offer our students, faculty, and members of the business community interdisciplinary resources. The College's research and teaching draws upon the sciences, mathematics, engineering, medicine, liberal arts, and fine artsto stimulate opportunities for technological innovation and economic development.
In just 10 years, the Stony Brook University College of Business has enjoyed enormous growth in faculty, research, and academic programs. Our faculty is now made up of 47 full time professors and affiliates, including 39 College of Business faculty and 8 members with joint or affiliate appointments, from such departments as Applied Mathematics, Economics, and Political Science. Our faculty fall within the research areas of Accounting & Finance; Management (Organizational Behavior and Operations Research/Decision Analytics); and Marketing & Strategy.
The faculty are from the most prestigious universities in the world including, but not limited to, Carnegie Mellon, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Northwestern, Sogang University, Tulane, University of California Santa Barbara, University of Michigan, University of Moscow, University of Munster, University of Virginia, Harvard University, and Yale. Many faculty members have dual affiliation with other Stony Brook departments, including Psychology, Technology and Society, Political Science, and Applied Math, and what’s more, they are involved in cutting edge interdisciplinary centers across campus, including the Center of Finance, Center for Behavior Political Economy and the Center for Behavioral Finance.
Our faculty involve both undergraduate and graduate students in their research, as well as provide students with experiential learning opportunities, including case studies, client projects and internships, with the ultimate goal of preparing students as leaders in their field of choice. Students are encouraged to develop and test their business ideas through support in our Innovation Center and curriculum in technology innovation and entrepreneurship.
Faculty members are integral in curriculum development, creating and refining programs that prepare students for future careers in business and academia. Our Accounting programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels have grown immensely in a short few years, and are now considered among the best in the New York metropolitan area. We now offer MBA programs in Finance and Marketing (in addition to the Management MBA) and at the undergraduate level, new curriculums have been added in international business and entrepreneurship, to meet the needs of a growing global and entrepreneurial economy.
