To save you time, here's a list of fast facts about our School of Business—and why it's one of the most ideal places in upstate New York to pursue a business degree.

What he loves about Siena: "I have had the opportunity to attend and teach at several different academic institutions. Without a doubt, Siena is my favorite. First, I love the opportunity to really get to know my students. The small classes make it easy to know their names. However, the culture at Siena is also very conducive to building a collaborative environment. I truly appreciate the opportunity to work with my students throughout the semester."
