Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to one of the Gabelli School graduate programs! We refer to orientation as Gabelli Launch. Gabelli Launch is a highly interactive and informative multi-day event designed to help you orient to the Gabelli School, Fordham University, and New York City. We want to provide you will all the tools you will need to be successful here. 

For students starting in the fall, Gabelli Launch for incoming M.S. students is usually held during mid-August. Full-time M.B.A. students start their multi-week Gabelli Launch traditionally at the end of July. And Professional M.B.A. Gabelli Launch is typically held the weekend before classes start. For students starting in the spring, Gabelli Launch is held in January, prior to classes starting. Online master's programs will participate in a fully online Gabelli Launch. 

Gabelli Launch is tailored towards the needs of each incoming class and is a mix of online and in-person information sessions, workshops, and events. The details for your Gabelli Launch experience will be made available to you via Blackboard. You will receive an email alerting you when Gabelli Launch is available on Blackboard.  

All students matriculating at the Gabelli School are required to attend in-person Gabelli Launch and engage in all online Gabelli Launch activities and materials on Blackboard.
