Getting the “Best” Graduates for Business

On Sept. 24, Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., Dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, participated in a panel with deans from three other universities focused on helping employers find the best graduates for their hiring needs.

Nearly 150 people were in attendance as the panel participants discussed the connections –and disconnections – between higher education and the Long Island business community. Other panel participants included Patricia Salkin, Dean, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, Touro College; Dr. Yacov Shamash, Dean, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Stony Brook University; and Dr. Patrick Socci, Dean, Frank Zarb School of Business, Hofstra University.

Each dean discussed their latest programs; Dean Anid highlighted NYIT’s Cyber Security programs and concentrations;  a new pilot program to help engineering undergraduates follow an entrepreneurship path to equip them for success in bringing their ideas to market; as well as the changing engineering landscape at NYIT through the transformative Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC).

Panelists agreed that despite great progress, more has to be done to bridge the gap between technology companies and students to supplement the knowledge and coursework needed to secure jobs once they graduate, and importantly, to attract and retain students on Long Island through internships, mentoring, and other related programs.    

The panel was sponsored by LISTnet (Long Island Software and Technology Network) and its Committee on Business Excellence Strategies and Trends (BEST).
