School of Business
Message from the Dean
The School of Business is accredited by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), which has been described by Forbes magazine as the “gold standard” in business school accreditation. Fewer than 25% of domestic business schools and fewer than 10% of business schools worldwide have met AACSB’s rigorous standards. We are the only AACSB accredited business program in a Franciscan college in the United States.
Our nearly 15,000 alumni occupy leadership positions throughout and beyond the Capital region and enthusiastically work with students, providing mentoring and internship opportunities. Our graduates are continuously recruited by leading employers due to Siena’s outstanding reputation.
Beyond the classroom, Siena sits on a beautiful suburban campus in a community that was recently described as the safest municipality in the United States. On campus we offer the excitement of Division I athletics, numerous extracurricular activities and more than 60 student organizations. The Capital Region itself offers an exciting mix of recreational/sporting, entertainment, cultural and professional activities. New York, Boston and Montreal are each within 3 hours of campus and offer additional opportunities for personal and professional pursuits. As one student recently said about Siena, “there is no better place to go to school.”
I invite your questions and comments and look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
Jeffrey A. Mello, Ph.D.
