10 Ways We Stand Apart
There’s no place in the world like New York City. If you want to shape global commerce, then you should go to school in the center of global commerce. Our Manhattan campus is steps from Times Square and Central Park. Your class might visit the Federal Reserve Bank, the New York Stock Exchange, or the United Nations. At Fordham, you have access year-round to internships that students in other cities can only dream about.

Our MBA programs include a range of full-time and part-time options, and many of our MS programs can be completed quickly to allow rapid re-entry into the professional world—some in as little as nine months. No matter your background, there’s a Gabelli School program for you.
We have more than 120 full-time professors and 100 adjunct instructors, most of whom are actively employed as executives in the New York City business community at top-flight firms including Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, IBM, Bloomberg, World Bank, McCann Erickson, and the Federal Reserve Bank. Thanks to such a diversity of professional backgrounds, our faculty in uniquely positioned to bring current industry expertise into the classroom.
Fluency in science, technology, engineering and math is a critical asset to leadership across all business fields. The Gabelli School is proud to offer three STEM pathways in our MBA program — FinTech, Information Systems, and Accounting — for both full-time and part-time students. On top of that, we offer eight MS programs that are STEM-certified, including Business Analytics, Global Finance, Marketing Intelligence, and Quantitative Finance.
A graduate business education represents a significant investment. The Gabelli School has established scholarships to support outstanding students in the pursuit of their academic goals. Best of all, applicants are automatically considered for merit, no additional application is required. We also offer a host of graduate assistantships, as well as loan programs to help you offset your costs.
Gabelli School graduates have an uncommonly strong belief in the power of their Fordham education. They know how much education has helped them in their own careers. And there are more than 40,000 of them in the workplace today. As a Gabelli graduate, you will have access to this smart, successful group of business leaders — and they participate actively in the life of the school.
Thanks to our well-connected Career Development Center, many of our students land impressive jobs within months of graduation at firms such as Google, Facebook, JP Morgan, IBM, and Goldman Sachs. We work hard to help you translate your Fordham academic experience into meaningful, productive academic-year internships and post-graduation jobs.
Traveling to another country provides an unparalleled advantage for business students. That’s why we offer global immersion trips in many of our graduate programs. These week-long trips are connected directly with a business class; for example, the Entrepreneurship and Fair Trade course includes a tour to meet business people in India. Past countries visited also include Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Peru, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
