Gabelli School of Business

The Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University prepares students for global leadership roles in business — not just any job — by combining an intensive, practice-oriented business curriculum with a distinguishing foundation in the liberal arts. Fordham’s New York City location allows students to hold internships year-round at the world’s largest multinational firms. No matter what students choose as their business focus, they are challenged to think in line with Fordham’s Jesuit tradition about how business can move beyond profit to truly advance society.

What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

Fordham's new integrated program breaks up classes and schedules in a way that may seem very obscure as a freshman or sophomore. They may also seem overwhelming. However, as you advance through the classes and the years you can look back and see that specific classes may have been split in half or moved around to help create a more well-rounded understanding of not only the subjects, but yourself and how you work with others.
