Queens College Announces New School of Business at March 3 Opening Reception
—Students Will Have the Opportunity to Apply Their Knowledge Through the School’s Tech Incubator, Small Business Development Center, and Blackstone Launchpad Program—
Flushing, NY, March 3, 2022—Queens College President Frank H. Wu announced the new Queens College School of Business at an opening reception today in the college’s Student Union Ballroom. Established as part of the 2021–2026 Strategic Plan in response to the projected workforce demand for business professionals in New York City, the school is built on a suite of existing programs in accounting, economics, and finance, as well as actuarial studies, international business, and risk management. A steering committee of faculty members and career counselors revised existing curricula, set up new tracks, and expanded career services to create the new school. “Interdisciplinary programs like these are to be expected in a business school with an integrated liberal arts curriculum,” said Wu. “The Queens College Business School isn’t just for business, accounting, and economics majors; we expect it to attract students interested in a wide range of subjects, such as political science, social justice, ethics, and cultural differences in the universe of business.” Students will also have the opportunity to apply their knowledge right on campus through the Tech Incubator at Queens College, Small Business Development Center, and the college’s partnership with Blackstone LaunchPad.
