Meet Simon’s MS Class of 2018!

Classes officially began for students in our four MS programs – Accountancy, Business Analytics, Finance, and Marketing Analytics – on July 31, but before that the Class of 2018 got acquainted with one another at orientation. The students went on a bus tour around the City of Rochester, visited the Strong National Museum of Play, had a happy hour at Artisan Works, and competed in an “Amazing Race” of team building activities on the quad.
