Zarb School of Business – Hofstra University
The Frank G. Zarb School of Business was founded in 1965 and was first accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (formerly the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business) in 1982 for its MBA programs. In 1994, Hofstra named the business school in honor of alumnus Frank G. Zarb.
The Zarb School of Business MBA and EMBA programs are held on Hofstra’s campus in Hempstead, New York, which is located on Long Island, about 25 miles from Manhattan. The campus is located less than 15 miles away from the John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The school’s primary buildings on campus are Weller Hall and C.V. Starr Hall. Weller Hall has 35,134 square feet of space dedicated to Zarb School of Business MBA students, faculty and administrators. The C.V. Starr Hall was completed in 2000 and includes classrooms and updated technological capabilities, including the Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room, which is equipped with 34 Bloomberg terminals and gives students access to the same data and analytics used by financial professionals.
In January 2019, the school opened a brand new 52,000 square foot facility. The new building houses a market research lab, business incubator, center for entrepreneurship, student workspace, as well as the dean’s and faculty offices.
