We studied the spectral properties of the matrices describing multiple scattering of electromagnetic waves from randomly distributed point-like magneto-optically active scatterers under an external magnetic field B. We showed that the complex eigenvalues of these matrices exhibit some universal properties such as the self-averaging behavior of their real parts, as in the case of scatterers without magneto-optical activity. However, the presence of magneto-optically active scatterers is responsible for a striking particularity in the spectra of these matrices: the splitting of the values of the imaginary part of their eigenvalues. This splitting is proportional to the strength of the magnetic field and can be interpreted as a consequence of the Zeeman splitting of the energy levels of a single scatterer.
