Welcome to the School of Business at The College of New Jersey as we complete our 30th year of undergraduate business education. What better way to be recognized for the quality of students, faculty, alumni and staff who have passed through our doors than to have Businessweek rank us as the top rated undergraduate business program in New Jersey!
As Dean I am extremely proud to be part of this tradition. Over the past two years Businessweek has ranked us nationally for the quality of our overall business program (#65 in ’11 and ’10) and our accounting program in particular (#46 in ’11, #47 in ’10). Of course everyone likes to receive good news. Our best compliments, however, come from our alumni, students, and corporate recruiters. Talented faculty and supportive staff have been successfully guiding young people for decades and it shows.
Rankings and compliments are nice outcomes that come only after a great deal of work. This year we will be adopting some new business ethics modules in each discipline area, proposing enhancements to each degree and concentration, and placing a renewed emphasis on connecting students with alumni and other business practitioners. Whether preparing to do an audit; investing actual money; working on a marketing campaign; learning selling techniques; or discovering effective ways to manage people, each student benefits by engaging in real situations and interacting with experienced business men and women.
This year alumni will come to campus for numerous events and students will travel to hear professionals speak, to compete in competitions, and to present their own research. Many of the extra things are made possible by gifts from alumni and other supporters whom we gratefully acknowledge for helping us deliver an engaging academic experience. If you are thinking of attending college or hiring a graduating college student consider the School of Business at The College of New Jersey.

With warm regards,
William W. Keep, Dean
