  • NJCU Establishes School of Business with Four Departments: Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing

    New Jersey City University has announced the establishment of a School of Business comprised of four independent Departments: Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing.

    The conversion of the University’s Department of Business Administration into the School of Business was unanimously approved by the NJCU Board of Trustees at its meeting on April 22.

    “The establishment of NJCU’s School of Business signifies the enormous growth of this University’s business programs over the past decade,” said Dr. Sue Henderson, NJCU president. “This will allow for further development in the business disciplines to better prepare students for tomorrow’s workforce.”

    The change is the culmination of reorganization planning begun in 2006 by the NJCU Business Administration Department’s Strategic Planning Committee which recommended the status change due to the Department’s “unabated growth in enrollment and constituent demand.”

    “Enrollment at both the undergraduate and graduate levels increased from 1,834 undergraduate and 30 graduate students in 2001 to 2,516 undergraduate and 510 graduate students in 2012,” explained Dr. Sandra Bloomberg, dean of the NJCU College of Professional Studies in which the School is located.

    During this same time period, the University’s accounting, finance, management, and marketing specializations were granted major degree status, each approved to offer the B.S. degree and the University began offering both undergraduate and graduate business programs at two off-campus sites: NJCU at Harborside on the Jersey City waterfront and NJCU at Brookdale in Wall Township.

    NJCU’s School of Business is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
