MBA students take the majority of their courses at the state-of-the-art Valley Road facility, encompassed by a serene wooded area. MBA program students have access to a number of unique resources.

A Beautiful State-of-the-Art Facility

With abundant parking, the Valley Road building offers a welcoming environment and is located along a corporate corridor that supports access to numerous global business industries.

“I love going to class at Valley Road. I do not have to worry about finding parking, the classes are at flexible and convenient times, and I know I will be in a quality learning environment”

– Lina Gu, MBA-Finance

Small Classes

The average MBA class has about 20 students – an environment primed for peer learning, faculty engagement, and case study reviews.

“The unique opportunity to study in a smaller classroom environment really gave me the sense of belonging and interaction that I needed to be able to be successful in my studies. The faculty are very engaged and I felt that I benefited greatly from having the ability to get to know my classmates.”

- Maureen Papaconstantinou, MBA-General Studies

Learning Resources

Our students benefit from having centralized access to sophisticated resources including the Small Business Development Center, the Russ Berrie Sales Institute for Professional Sales and its sales laboratories, the Global Business and Finance Institute, and the Writing and Tutoring Center at Valley Road. In addition, we utilize simulation software for hands-on learning in our finance concentration courses. Several computer laboratories are available for student research, and our Cotsakos College of Business library and career development professionals are available on-site at Valley Road to assist you.

“Having everything in one location for quality learning has really made it easy to focus on my coursework as well as have the opportunity to develop my overall professional skills. Working with the Small Business Development Center and taking advantage of the Bloomberg terminal training has really elevated my résumé.”
