Originally intending to go into a career in engineering, it was by chance that he took economics courses that forever changed the course for Dr. Szenberg. While serving in the Israeli Air Force, he applied to the engineering school at New York University but was told to wait a year. His sister recommended that he take whatever courses he could during this year to fulfill some requirements and when he took economics and found his calling. He studied at Bar Ilan University prior to earning a Bachelor of Arts at Long Island University summa cum laude in 1963 and later received a PhD from the City University of New York in 1970. Since 2013, he has served as Chair and Distinguished Professor of Business and Economics at the Touro College and University System. He has taught at the Brooklyn campus of Long Island University since 1965 and was Chairman of Finance and Economics at Pace University from 2000 to 2012.

In addition to these full-time positions, Dr. Szenberg has taught at New York University, the Newark College of Engineering and Hunter College. He has served as the Chairman of the First Metropolitan Graduate Conference on Economics and was a founder, director and lecturer for the Bureau of Economics in 1973. Furthermore, he was a fellow of the International Honor Society of Economics and an Eugene Land Regional Fellow at Pace University. Throughout his career, he has authored and helped edit numerous publications, including, “Distressed U.S. Industries in the Era of Globalization,” “Franco Modigliani, A Mind that Never Rests,” and Passion and Craft, Economists at Work.” He has received such awards for his work as the Faculty Advisor Award from Pace University, the Distinguished School Award from the Northeast Business Economics Society and the Schalkenbach Foundation Research Award.
