Admissions Journal:
The Zicklin School of Business is the largest collegiate school of business in the nation and the only CUNY unit that offers business programs accredited by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The Zicklin School offers degree programs leading to the BBA, MBA, Executive MBA, MS, Executive MS in Finance, and the Baruch/Mt. Sinai MBA in Health Care Administration, which is accredited by the CAHME (Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education). Among its exciting new initiatives are the Zicklin Full-Time MBA program, which enrolls a select group of candidates whose credentials and average GMAT scores of 647 place them among the top students in the nation. Its combined, five-year undergraduate/MS degree program in accountancy meets the latest education requirements for the CPA exam. The Zicklin School houses the City University's PhD in business and offers a joint degree program leading to the JD/MBA degrees in conjunction with both Brooklyn Law School and The New York Law School.

Zicklin undergraduate programs prepare students for careers in all phases of business. These programs are designed to provide students with the specialized knowledge they need for entry into the work force along with the analytical and communication skills essential for a successful career. One half of the credits required for the BBA degree are in the arts, sciences and general education providing graduates with a solid and broad educational foundation. Furthermore, the curriculum exposes students to ethical values that encourage participation in community affairs, and to an awareness of the relationship between business and the legal, political, and social settings in which it functions.

The Zicklin MBA features a core curriculum that spans all the major business areas and a specialization that permits students to explore a specific area in greater depth.

Zicklin's MS degree programs offer in-depth study in a range of areas. Unlike the broader MBA curriculum, students are often not required to do coursework in disciplines included in the MBA core. The MS is a more focused degree and usually requires fewer courses.
