As the School of Business in a Franciscan, Catholic, and liberal arts college, we place paramount importance on teaching. We prepare our students with the analytic, communication, leadership, teamwork and learning skills necessary to help their organizations solve complex problems while thoughtfully considering the impact on all stakeholders and the natural world.

Siena College has been educating business students since 1937. Nearly 15,000 business leaders have graduated from the Siena College School of Business. With majors in accounting, economics, finance, and marketing & management, many of our graduates have reached the upper levels of management in business, nonprofit, and government organizations.

School of Liberal Arts

The mission of the School of Liberal Arts is to create a dynamic learning community, rooted in the ideals of our Franciscan and Catholic tradition, in which students and faculty work together to explore the intellectual, spiritual, and aesthetic dimensions of a humane and responsible world. We accomplish this through academically rigorous programs in the humanities, social sciences and the arts.

Students and faculty engage in active teaching and learning to develop critical and creative thinking, informed and reasoned judgment, a diversity of intellectual and cultural perspectives, clear writing, and effective communication.
