    Description of the MBA Program

    In today’s world of constant change and extraordinary opportunity, the need for business education has never been greater. Our MBA degree program is taught by leading Stony Brook faculty. They are complemented by key executives recruited as visiting professors from throughout the tri-state region—industry leaders who have built stellar careers in today’s global business world.

    Our students participate in a vibrant learning environment where they gain the knowledge, skills, and insights necessary to manage complex organizations. Our dedicated faculty has both academic and business experience, and teaches not only the broad principles of management, finance, and marketing but also the more intangible aspects of leadership, communications, and business strategy.

    The College of Business offers flexible full and part time programs with day, evening, and Saturday courses at our beautiful main campus in Stony Brook, Long Island, which is located 60 miles east of New York City. We also offer some courses for the MBA program in an online format. As a result of our relationship with business schools overseas, our programs extend to the far corners of the globe.

    Full-time students are encouraged to spend a summer session or a semester in the study abroad program to learn about business in Africa, China, Europe, India, Korea, Greece, or the Middle East. These experiences provide students with a competitive edge in the job market as businesses increasingly look for employees with overseas experience. Today most businesses are global in nature, whether they are multinational corporations or small local businesses with overseas suppliers, customers, or a diverse international workforce.

    By focusing on strategic, managerial, analytical, and technical processes and outcomes critical to success in a broad spectrum of industries, Stony Brook University’s MBA program helps students recognize ways in which they can add value to their firms and advance their careers.

    Superior Teaching in a Nurturing Learning Environment: The Stony Brook program prides itself on its superior teaching and its dedication to working with each student to develop his or her business and managerial skills. We seek to bridge the gap between theory and practice by selecting faculty members who can clearly communicate the practical benefits of managerial knowledge.

    Research

    Faculty members in the College of Business are strongly committed to teaching and fostering working relationships with students inside and outside the classroom, while maintaining their involvement in research.

    In their research, Business professors examine complex issues and problems confronting today’s managers and decision makers. They analyze businesses and other institutions as well as the economic, regulatory, and technological forces underlying decision-making processes and ongoing changes within these organizations. They keep close contact not only with other researchers in the United States and abroad, but also with regional, national, and international businesses by conducting applied research projects and working as consultants.

    Students at the College of Business benefit from this high-caliber research in several ways. Faculty members often revise and develop new course materials to incorporate current research into their teaching and instruction. Exposing students to the latest knowledge and management skills best prepares them for future challenges and, at the same time, makes the classroom experience dynamic and stimulating. Business students work closely with professors and all students are invited to participate in seminars conducted by the school’s researchers.

    The College houses Centers for Human Resource Management, Health Services Research Management, Information Systems Management, Center for Operational Excellence, and the Innovation Center. Quality research conducted by the centers contributes significantly to the College’s academic programs. In addition, the centers’ applied and interdisciplinary research promotes valuable interactions with industry, government, and nonprofit organizations and provides hands-on experience to students.

    Behavioral Research Lab

    The College of Business Behavioral Research Lab provides a space for faculty to conduct experiments and test theories that will help consumers, managers, and organizations make better decisions. The lab is equipped with computers and recording equipment to support the growing number of researchers who serve as principle investigators in areas such as behavioral finance, consumer behavior, and organizational behavior. The space may be reserved by faculty in the College of Business and students conducting research studies under the supervision of a faculty member in the College of Business.
