The College of Business, introduced to SUNY Korea by Stony Brook University, is the most recent college from Stony Brook to join the SUNY Korea departments. At Stony Brook, it is one of 13 colleges and schools in the University, and it offers a major in Business Management, with specialization choices in Accounting and Finance, leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.
The College of Business at Stony Brook University prepares students for leadership roles, fosters entrepreneurial growth, and conducts cutting-edge research that informs business practice. The College's strong faculty from around the world achieve rigorous standards for research productivity and teaching effectiveness. The College attracts top-quality students and engages them in the highest level of hands-on business education. As a business school at a flagship public research university, we offer our students, faculty, and members of the business community interdisciplinary resources. The College's research and teaching draw upon the sciences, mathematics, engineering, medicine, liberal arts, and fine arts to stimulate opportunities for technological innovation and economic development.
The Business Management major is designed for students who wish to enter the business arena with substantial knowledge and skills across the full spectrum of business disciplines, but who also have a specific interest in either Accounting or Finance. Career opportunities include management positions in financial planning, banking, corporate accounting, public accounting, and more. Students are also prepared for advanced study in both Accounting and Finance, as well as other areas of business. While students have the opportunity to specialize in either Accounting or Finance, they will also take classes in business statistics, decision sciences, and general management.
In just 10 years, the College of Business has enjoyed enormous growth in faculty, research, and academic programs. College of Business faculty is made up of 46 full-time professors and affiliates, including 40 College of Business faculty and 6 members with joint or affiliate appointments, from such departments as Applied Mathematics, Economics, and Political Science.

Students are encouraged to develop and test their business ideas through support in the College’s Innovation Center and curriculum in technology innovation and entrepreneurship.
