Dean's Message

Welcome to Fordham’s graduate business programs.

You are about to discover the extraordinary variety and custom approach that Fordham brings to graduate business education. We recognize that in business, one program does not fit all.

Fordham offers a range of choices that most schools do not. In addition to a full-time cohort MBA and what we call the Professional MBA—which can be taken full-time or part-time—students may consider more than a dozen Master of Science programs matched to areas of rapid employment growth.

No matter what a student’s goals, Fordham has a high-quality, industry-current program. Notably, the full-time MBA underwent a complete revision in 2014; part of this fall’s entering class is experiencing its hands-on, team-oriented learning model. The new MBA is designed to produce graduates who will not merely contribute to, but rather reshape, the business world.

Across the board, what distinguishes Fordham, as the only Jesuit business school in New York City, is our commitment to leadership with purpose. Students emerge knowing exactly how to go above and beyond to advance their own careers, their industry of choice, and society as a whole. They become part of an academic community and an alumni community that will support them wholeheartedly in being a force for progress.

We look forward to welcoming the next class of students who will change the landscape.

Sincerely,

Donna Rapaccioli, PhD
Dean, Gabelli School of Business
