Two New Concentrations Available within the MBA Degree:
The College of Business is proud to announce that beginning in the Fall 2012 semester, two new MBA concentrations will be available. Innovation and Accounting will now be offered to new and current MBA students. “These new concentrations address the changing workforce needs of New York and beyond,” states College of Business Dean Manuel London. The Innovation Concentration will focus on entrepreneurship, new business development, and joining invention and innovation with strategic business planning. "Students participate in creating Silicon Valley East by turning university inventions into new products and businesses," states Professor Gerrit Wolf, who is Director of the Innovation Concentration, as well as Director of the University's Innovation Center.
The Accounting concentration meets the criteria for the New York State education and licensing requirements that professionals seeking NYS CPA licensure have to fulfill. "Stony Brook’s program goes well beyond the minimum education requirements of New York State. Our program requires a minimum of 21 accounting credits at the undergraduate level and another 24 at the graduate level. The graduate level MBA program curriculum for the accounting concentration also includes 36 additional credits in various areas of business, including finance, economics, marketing, operations, and more. We want students to be absolutely prepared for the rigors of the CPA exam, as well as the demands of a career in public accounting,” says Carl Allocca, Director of the Accounting Concentration at Stony Brook.
