Simon Business School, University of Rochester

The University of Rochester, an independent, privately endowed and managed university founded in 1850, is among the leading private institutions of higher learning in the United States. Rochester faculty and alumni have included 9 Nobel Prize winners and 12 Pulitzer Prize winners.


The Simon Business School is one of the seven schools that make up the University of Rochester. It is named after William E. Simon, a financial entrepreneur and former U.S. Treasury Secretary, who believed strongly in the principles and ideals of the school. He offered not only his name, but also an enduring financial commitment to the school's continued success (see Rankings & Accreditations for current rankings).


The Rochester-Bern Executive MBA program, as part of the Simon Business School, carries with it the reputation of one of the world's top 50 graduate business schools, which awards MBA degrees since 1962. It has been fully accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International since 1966.
