Dean, William G. Rohrer College of Business
Welcome to the William G. Rohrer College of Business home page to learn about the College! In the past academic year we adopted “Experience Personal Learning. Experience Your Future.” as our collective identity. This page will show you how we are living it.
The logos below my signature symbolize our efforts to continually improve. We hold accreditation from the prestigious AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The MIS program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Both accreditations put us in the distinctive group of one of five business colleges in the United States and only school in our adjacent states to hold both coveted accreditations.
These important accreditations have been earned because of our faculty and staff's strong commitment to incessantly engage in enhancing our student's learning experience. Students excel in the classroom and beyond it - whether through volunteer work, research, competitions or internships with outstanding firms. And the hallmark of the Rohrer College of Business - project-based learning - provides our students with the experience that makes them desirable to employers in many fields. Our SAP university alliance affords the student to use the state-of-art enterprise technology. We have added a Student Managed Investment Fund and a Trading Room to add to active learning experience of our students.
The College offers undergraduate majors in accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, human resource management, management, management information systems and marketing, along with a reputed M.B.A. program with concentrations in accounting, finance, management, marketing, and supply chain management. We have enhanced access to our M.B.A. degree by offering the program online through the College of Graduate and Continuing Education (CGCE). Certificates of Graduate Study in Business, Certificate of Graduate Study in MIS, and Certificate of Advanced Graduate study have been added to provide a plethora of opportunities for our practicing managers to hone their leadership skills to navigate a dynamic business environment.
The College contributes not only to education but also to economic development of the communities in which we live. For instance, the Rohrer College of Business Incubator (RCBI) located at the South Jersey Technology Park (SJTP) where our students - guided by our expert faculty - help start-up companies grow. Our students participate in projects in not-for-profit sectors to enrich the lives of the citizens in our communities.
Our students take part in leadership clubs on the campus under the aegis of the Bureau of Business Associations (BOBA). The College supports the participation of its club members at national events where they compete with their peers and get opportunity to network with business and academic leaders. Our FMA earned superior chapter award, consecutively, in 2010 and 2011and our AMA consistently wins several awards at the national conference.
I extend you my invitation to be a part of this learning community if you are in the search of a quality education that will meet your career goals. I would encourage you to explore this site further to learn about the features that set us apart from our competition. On the other hand, if you are an alumni or a parent, or a benevolent friend of the College, I would invite you to show your generosity by investing in the College to make the College's stature grow.
