Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business is a dynamic educational community located just 25 miles from New York City, the world’s business capital, and home to one of the top undergraduate business programs in the nation according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The Zarb School’s graduate programs are also consistently ranked as a leading national business program by U.S. News & World Report , The Princeton Review, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Forbes. Zarb’s online MBA program was recently ranked #15 in the nation by The Princeton Review.
Indeed, the Zarb School is ranked in the top four percent of the nation’s “Best Schools for Business Majors” (for graduates with a bachelor’s degree), according to both the 2015-16 PayScale College Salary Report and the PayScale College ROI Report. It is also ranked in the top five percent nationwide among Best Schools for Business Careers, based on the 20-year return on investment of graduates with a bachelor’s degree, according to the Payscale College ROI Report, and among the top 30 percent in the nation on mid-career salary for alumni of advanced degree programs.
Zarb is among only 10 percent of business schools to earn accreditation in both business and accounting from AACSB International, a rigorous certification that attests to how well the Zarb School prepares its graduates for today’s global business environment. Zarb students have won awards in national competitions and successfully launched their own businesses before graduation. The Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room, equipped with 34 Bloomberg terminals, is among the largest and most technologically advanced academic facilities in the nation, where students access the same data and analytics used by financial professionals. Small classes taught by faculty dedicated to teaching and scholarship provide a supportive learning environment with close student-teacher interaction.
Students have access to a wealth of experiential learning opportunities. The Zarb Dean’s Business Scholars Program provides high-achieving students with enrichment opportunities designed to enhance their business education. Conferences, as well as undergraduate and graduate executive speaker series events, explore important themes facing global industries. Active involvement in the more than 40 Zarb student organizations and numerous community partnerships enhance leadership skills and provide students with hands-on experience at local businesses and schools.
Our network of over 30,000 successful Zarb alumni, coupled with a dedicated undergraduate and graduate career services team, provide invaluable connections leading to prestigious internships and full-time positions.
