Dear Fellow Deans,

Greetings from Garden City, New York!

I trust you had a restful break and the New Year is off to a splendid start. We are getting ready for the beginning of the spring semester next week and I am looking forward to seeing many of you at our annual AACSB gathering next month in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, here are a few stories from recent weeks that may interest you.

IMPACT—School Is Ranked!
Two new rankings spotlight Adelphi University's Willumstad School of Business. Niche put us at 23rd among its 50 Best Colleges for Business in New York among the more than 150 colleges and universities it reviewed. An online service that offers "rigorous analysis" of data about educational organizations, Niche uses information from the U.S. Department of Education as well as reviews by students and graduates. See the rankings online . Top Management Degrees , an online service that focuses on business and management education, ranked Adelphi 16th among M.B.A. programs in the state—and 25th for undergraduate business programs . These rankings consider accreditation, average alumni salary and prestige. While we don't want to overemphasize rankings, we are always pleased when the high quality of our programs is recognized by external reviewers.
ENGAGEMENT—Firms Flock to Seek Interns
Two hundred nine—that is the number of businesses and organizations with which we place our students for internships. Among some of the new firms taking our students are Bank of America, Bloomingdale's, Canon, CA Technologies, Credit Suisse and Oppenheimer. Our students' superb preparedness for the internships is what makes new firms seek them and companies return to campus. This high-impact learning activity is also translating into improved placement for the students when they graduate.
INNOVATION M.B.A. Program for Health Industry Professionals
Two cohorts of healthcare professionals from NYU Winthrop Hospital here on Long Island just graduated from our M.B.A. program. Thirty-two students completed the 42-credit Accelerated M.B.A. program that is offered on Saturdays. This is one of several programs we have designed to meet the educational needs of prospective students who are time-bound and place-bound. Our hospital programs organize classroom locations and timings that are convenient to working professionals. Learn more about our graduate programs .
