Tobin College of Business – St. John’s University
Initially established as The School of Accounting, Commerce and Finance and The College of Business Administration in 1927, the Peter J. Tobin College of Business was renamed in 2000 after a generous donation from Peter Tobin, the Dean of the College of Business, and his wife. The school received accreditation for master’s business programs from AACSB International in 1982.
St. John’s main campus is located in Queens, New York. The school maintains additional New York campuses in Staten Island and Manhattan. MBA students also have the opportunity to study in Rome, Italy.
The main campus in Queens is located less than 10 miles away from New York City’s LaGuardia International Airport.
St. John’s main campus spans 105 acres in the borough of Queens. The D’Angelo Center, a 127,000–square foot, five-story building, is considered the hub of the Queens campus. As the largest building on campus, it houses 14 classrooms, six seminar rooms, and student recreation and entertainment space, among other facilities. A ten-story building serves as a campus hub for MBA students in Manhattan. The “vertical campus” features a five-story entrance atrium, 16 conference and seminar rooms, dormitories, 24 high-tech classrooms, and several computer labs. MBA students may also take courses at the Staten Island campus in the residential Grymes Hill section.
The main MBA campus in Rome, Italy, is located in the Prati neighborhood. In 2009, St. John’s expanded the facilities to include 12 classrooms, a multi-use conference room, and a student lounge. The new facilities are within walking distance of Vatican City.
