  • A Message from the Dean
  • Image of Larry M. Newman, Ph.D. The College of Business Administration is pleased to have completed another successful academic year.  More than 500 students graduated last month with degrees in business administration.  On May 13, 147 students graduated with their Master of Business Administration, Master of Accountancy or their Executive MBA.  On May 14, 386 students graduated with their Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. This success would not have been possible without the support of the faculty in the CBA, the administrators who make sure everything runs smoothly and the families of our students.

    During the 2010-11 academic year, we look forward to the kickoff of our revised MBA and EMBA graduate programs as well as the launch of our new online bachelor completion program.  The new year will bring expanded international partnership programs with Sanda University in Shanghai, China, and CEFAM in Lyon, France.

    The CBA, with its commitment to student-centeredness and continuous improvement, also looks forward to another successful year. 

    Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

    Larry M. Newman, Ph.D.

Rider’s College of Business Administration continued to bring real-world experience to its students during the spring 2010 semester with two events designed to examine ethical and unethical behavior, as well as the reality of white-collar crime. Students learned the parameters of these topics and how to detect fiscal and workplace irregularities under the tutelage of corporate and government officials in February and March.

  • Faculty Spotlight on Dr. Maria Sanchez
    As part of a 2010 Summer Fellowship through Rider University, Dr. Maria Sanchez, associate professor of Accounting, will analyze public records and media clips detailing the Sen. Vincent Fumo case, using forensic accounting techniques. Through the case study, she plans to explain the fraud, show how it could have been prevented, identify the role of forensic accountants and provide recommendations for professionals in the areas of fraud prevention, detection and prosecution.
  • Chuck McCall Awarded 2010 Nancy Gray Award
    On April 8, during University Day festivities, the 2010 Nancy Gray Award was presented to Dr. Charles McCall, associate professor of Economics. For McCall, the award is a culmination of the more than 30 years he has spent in Lawrenceville, instilling his knowledge of macroeconomics and industrial organization within his students.  Searching for a way to describe his role at Rider University, McCall humbly invoked a comparison from the world of sports. “If this were basketball, I wouldn’t be the one scoring all the points,” said McCall. “But I think I would constantly be trying to get someone else the ball in a position to score.”
  • Students Learn Leadership on the Go at Wawa
    Rider students seeking a role model in business leadership and excellence need only follow the footprints that lay before them. Over 40 years ago, Howard Stoeckel ’67 found himself in a position today’s students can relate to: a Business degree in one hand and with the other trying to open the doors to a career. Today, Stoeckel is the chief executive officer of  Wawa, Inc., overseeing 571 convenience-store locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, and ensuring that customers can quickly purchase their favorite built-to-order hoagies, freshly brewed coffee, and any number of other products that make their day that much easier. What’s more, Stoeckel has also served as chair of the Rider Board of Trustees since 2008.
    Decade of Dominance for SBI Continues
