Siena College: CEFAM partner

Founded in 1937, this independent Franciscan college is located near Albany, in upstate New York. One of CEFAM’s dual degree partners outside of an urban centre, Siena provides a traditional college campus setting in a peaceful college town. However, its being near the New York State capital gives students quick access to both New York City and Boston. The community focus is incredibly welcoming and expands into an extraordinary alumni network that CEFAM students here become a part of and receive amazing benefits from

Siena College received their AACSB accreditation in 2006, with an honorable mention of the quality of their facilities, notably their real time trading room.
