Old Westbury, N.Y.( Jan. 23, 2008 )– Jess S. Boronico has joined New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) as dean of the School of Management. Dr. Boronico brings more than 20 years of experience as a university administrator and educator, during which he has been instrumental in forging strong university-corporate relationships and securing multimillion-dollar grants for university programs that integrate emerging technologies in the areas of finance, enterprise resource planning, and information systems.

He will also create new programs within the school, develop relations with the business community, and work collaboratively with other NYIT deans on interdisciplinary programs

Dr. Boronico comes to NYIT from the University of New Haven’s College of Business, where he was dean and a professor. He was also a dean and tenured professor at William Paterson University and Monmouth University. He has a Doctor of Philosophy in operations research and management science from the Wharton School of Business, and Master of Science and Bachelor of Science degrees from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He has published numerous manuscripts in journals, including Omega, The European Journal of Operations Research, Transportation Research, and The American Statistician and is co-author of the book Computer Simulation in Operations Management.
