Lubin Cited for Best Practices in Maintaining Its Dual Accreditation
  [Lubin Cited for Best Practices in Maintaining Its Dual Accreditation]
The Lubin School of Business has successfully maintained its dual accreditation, in both business and accounting, from AACSB International for another five years. In the AACSB team's report, they cited Lubin for its "exemplary Assurance of Learning process." The team also lauded Lubin's other strengths including: "Student-focused; experience-based learning; financial capital location; small classes; culture of collegiality; strong loyalty and program satisfaction among students and alumni; faculty commitment to students; jobs at graduation - recent placement rates for BBA/MBA program approach 100%." Lubin is one of only three schools in New York City to have this prestigious dual accreditation from AACSB, which fewer than 2% of the 13,000 business schools in the world have been able to achieve.

Faculty Bookshelf
Brave New World Economy: Global Finance Threatens Our Future, co-authored by Robert Isaak, PhD, professor of management, and Wilhelm Hankel, was recently published by John Wiley publishers, simultaneously in English and German (the German title: Geldherrschaft). The book explores how "Obamanomics," the Euro crisis, and the shift of economic growth from the West to emerging economies, if handled properly, can lead to true economic stability and job creation. A key theme that emerges in the book is that how the United States arrived at this economic crossroads isn't as important as the decision as to which path to take.
