Our Accomplishments

As we conclude the academic year, it’s important to take a moment to reflect upon how far our business school has come over the past few years.  Our accomplishments  include:

  • Accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the “gold standard” of accreditation for business schools around the world;
  • Opening of a dedicated Career Services Office for business students, providing the full suite of career coaching services designed to prepare and assist students in finding cooperative education (co-op), internship and full time employment opportunities; and
  • The launch of our highly successful Project Management Certificate program which arms working professionals, as well as our current students, with some of the most sought-after skills in today’s employment market.

Accelerated MBA for Working Professionals

This year we welcomed the third student cohort of our Accelerated MBA Program for Working Professionals. These students will earn their MBA degrees in just 20 months through an innovative curriculum which stresses hands-on learning, includes a trip to China to gain insight into the business opportunities available in today’s emerging markets, and gives students the chance to further sharpen their management and leadership skills through real-world consulting assignments with local area businesses.

This cohort group is comprised of an extraordinarily talented and diverse set of working professionals from a broad array of enterprises including several Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations. Participants come to us with an equally diverse set of undergraduate backgrounds which naturally include the business disciplines as well as such areas as journalism, psychology, chemistry, engineering and music. Because so much of the learning that takes place in MBA programs is the result of the interchange of ideas and experiences among the members of the class, the quality of the resulting learning experience depends upon the depth and breadth of the backgrounds of the participants.  Given the impressive composition of the first three cohorts of our new MBA program, we are sure that our students are in for an amazing, career-altering and life-altering learning experience.   (To learn more about the MBA program go to

So where do we go from here?

We will continue to explore and develop new initiatives to further improve the quality of the educational experience we provide to our traditional students and grow our offerings to additional student populations that will benefit from the expertise and teaching skills we have to offer.  In light of the current economic climate, we will put significant emphasis on career coaching and professional skill development initiatives to ensure that our graduating students are fully prepared to successfully compete for the best jobs in the marketplace.

Stay tuned for updates on the continued growth and evolution of the Anisfield School of Business. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions and greatly appreciate your continued support.
