  • A Message from the Dean
  • Image of Larry M. Newman, Ph.D. The College of Business Administration is proud to report that throughout 2010-2011, our ongoing efforts regarding continuous improvement have been remarkable.  Not only do these efforts address the goals set forth in the University’s strategic plan, but they also take into account important areas of our AACSB accreditation standards and ultimately the value of the knowledge that is being bestowed to our students.
  • For example, a major undertaking happening right now is a comprehensive review of our undergraduate curriculum.  Thanks to extensive efforts by our faculty and input from various other stakeholders we are nearing the end of this process and hope to roll out the revised curriculum in the Fall 2012 semester. 

  • We have also continued to develop international experiences for our students to ensure that they have a strong global perspective when they graduate and leave Rider. This effort includes a new partnership between Rider, Sanda University and CEFAM where post-baccalaureate students study business in the United States, China and France. In addition to taking MBA classes, students attend seminars on various topics related to business within each of the cultures.

    EXCEED, our new Executive Development Center in partnership with the College of Continuing Studies, continues to gain traction in achieving our vision as being recognized as a thought leader in business education in the region. 

  • Have a safe and enjoyable summer!

    Larry M. Newman, Ph.D.

  • Faculty Spotlight on Dr. Susan Denbo
    As a result of Rider University’s growing partnership with Centre d’études Franco americain de management (CEFAM) in Lyon, France, Dr. Susan Denbo, director of the International Business major and professor of Legal Studies and Business Ethics, was selected to participate in a teaching exchange partnership.

  • Program Creates Path from Class to Career
    Through the Pathways for Marketing and Advertising Program, students work on a Healthy Choice case analysis for SapientNitro, an interactive marketing firm. The opportunity to work with SapientNitro evolved from conversations with Alan Wexler ’85, MBA ’90, who is senior vice president and managing director of North America for SapientNitro and a member of the College of Business Administration’s Executive Advisory Council (EAC).
  • Grant to Fund Aspiring Accounting Professional Program

Dr. Evelyn McDowell, assistant professor of Accounting, applied for the grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, backed by the Bill Gates Foundation, and sponsored by Allen Boston, a member of the College of Business Administration’s Executive Advisory Council at Rider.
