Jonathan Hill

Founded in 1983, we are one of the first dedicated schools of computer science and information systems in the country. The Seidenberg School is so named in honor of Ivan G. Seidenberg, former chairman and CEO of Verizon Communications, Inc. who generously supported the School with the largest gift ever given to Pace University.

Our students study in the greatest business center in the country during the biggest boom for tech jobs in memory. Each student follows their own, personalized Pace Path during their studies, combining top academics with a variety of hands-on, skill-based experiences that lead to the internships that, in turn, lead to great jobs.

As a Seidenberg student, you will be part of a community of students, faculty, alumni, corporate executives, tech entrepreneurs, and government leaders who are shaping the future of technology.

So check us out! Have a look at what we do and, by all means, come and visit. Great things happen here at the Seidenberg School every day and, if you are passionate about technology, you don't want to miss it.
