University of Rochester Simon Business School

I just got word that the Simon Business School NYC Master in Finance program is relocating to a new campus in lower Manhattan. The school is moving from midtown Manhattan to the Tribeca campus of the New York Law School. This move is to make the program more easily accessible for financial professionals and others looking to attend the NYC program.

” The agreement between the two professional academic institutions is a creative, multi-year arrangement that aims to form an innovative partnership to optimize resources and capitalize on the different schedules and programs of the two institutions. The Simon Business School offers courses in New York City for 13-month part-time graduate programs designed for working professionals, with MS programs in finance, management, and health care management. Simon students attend classes primarily on weekends, while students of NYLS, which offers full- and part-time law degree programs and a two-year JD honors program, attend primarily during the week with some weekend options.  The business school, which had been located in a commercial office building, will move its NYC administrative offices and academic course offerings to the NYLS facility. Students will be able to take advantage of the classrooms, library, meeting and event spaces, and other amenities of NYLS’ high-tech urban campus, located at 185 W. Broadway (at Leonard Street).  The move to Lower Manhattan, which is under review by theMiddle States Commission on Higher Education, will provide students with a comprehensive and unmatched learning environment, along with direct access to Wall Street, the City’s civic center, and tech corridor. This will be the only co-located law school and business school under one roof in New York City.”

I’ve been to the current campus and liked the location, but I definitely think this new location offers a number of advantages. The collaboration will be beneficial to Rochester students regardless of their program of study. I will make an effort to get to New York City soon to check out the new set up and report back to everyone.
