The Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University educates students who possess the knowledge, creativity, and skills to have a defining and lasting impact. Gabelli School students share a “business with a purpose” approach that balances the demands of profit with the interests of their communities and the world; here, they refine their business philosophy, along with industry- and function-specific knowledge, through a mix of practical and theoretical learning experiences. Top firms seek out Gabelli School MBAs for their analytical and strategic thinking, strong communication and interpersonal skills, principled leadership, sense of humility, and commitment to collaboration and community. Fordham produces students whom people will hear about and admire not in 15 or 20 years, but in one or two.

The mission of the Gabelli School of Business is to develop business leaders who are equipped for continuous growth in the changing global environment. Located in midtown Manhattan, the commercial capital of the world, the Gabelli School is uniquely positioned to offer students the opportunity to participate in regional and global economies. Its reputation is built upon scholarship and excellence in teaching; the faculty includes both distinguished academics and working professionals in leadership positions at major corporations, government agencies, and startups.

Community is a hallmark of the Gabelli School, where an open, supportive environment proves that it is possible to be both competitive and collaborative. MBA students receive special attention in their internship and job searches from top-ranking Gabelli School alumni; at the conclusion of their program, our MBAs become part of the global network of 175,000 Fordham University alumni, whose loyalty is second to none.
