Every success story has a key moment that propels the protagonist on a path to achievement. For the Zicklin School one such moment is the year 1919, when the College of the City of New York, a trailblazer in broadening access to public higher education, created a School of Business and Civic Administration—the precursor to today’s Zicklin School of Business.

Throughout Zicklin’s history, there are two fundamental elements that haven’t changed: the School’s commitment to providing superior business education that is both accessible and impactful; and our students’ drive to fulfill their professional hopes and dreams.

Today, the Zicklin School of Business is at the forefront of efforts to usher higher education into a new era of value, excellence, and relevance. Our success story is just beginning, with many more chapters to come.
