The business program at Brooklyn College was established in 1985 and housed in the Department of Economics. In 2011, the School of Business was established with three separate departments: Accounting, Economics, and Finance and Business Management. In 2015, Finance and Business Management was split into two distinct departments. In the same year, the school was renamed the Murray Koppelman School of Business. In 2019, the school achieved its initial accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The school enrolls approximately 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students each year in accounting, data analytics, economics, finance, management, and marketing degree programs. Our graduates are frequently recruited by the Big Four accounting firms and financial institutions on Wall Street as well as businesses and government agencies in New York City.

Our Mission

We prepare our diverse learning community for professional careers and active citizenship by providing a high-quality education based on a healthy respect for the intellectual traditions of Brooklyn College. Our priority is to offer a high return on the time and money students invest in their education. We strive to teach and instill in our students communication, quantitative, and conceptual skills as well as the ethics, international focus, and global mindsets demanded by business.
