Business education at Syms focuses on emphasizing the centrality of ethics, entrepreneurship and experienced-based learning. While the school continues to build on the success of its BS offerings in accounting, finance, information and decision sciences, management, marketing, and MS in accounting programs, it has also undertaken several initiatives:
- A Sunday Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) Program that launched in fall 2012.
- A Business Honors and Entrepreneurial Leadership Program offering challenging coursework, a multitude of entrepreneurial internship opportunities and significant interactions with global business visionaries.
- Leading With Meaning, which focuses on the ethical and moral dilemmas frequently encountered in the business world.
Additionally through the school’s annual Doris and Dr. Ira Kukin Entrepreneurial and Executive Lecture Series, students have the opportunity to learn from some of today's most influential business leaders—groundbreakers who represent the most successful organizations in the world.
