Emanuel Saxe

Emanuel Saxe, a 1923 graduate of the School of Business, with a Diploma in Accounting, returned to his alma mater in 1928 to begin a distinguished career as a scholar, educator and administrator. He became Chairman of the Accountancy Department in 1950 and in 1956 was named Dean of the School of Business--a position which he held for twelve years. His sincere concern for his students and the college led to the School of Business being referred to informally as "Saxe's 23rd Street".

During his administration, he was instrumental in bringing the business honor society, Beta Gamma Sigma to Baruch, helping to start the Baruch College Fund, and working toward the accreditation of the school by the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business.

In his later years, he was named Martin Wollman Distinguished Professor and City University Distinguished Professor, both in Accountancy. The Baruch College community has a wonderful legacy left by its distinguished alumnus, Emanuel Saxe.
