The New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association:

Investing in New Jersey's Future

Welcome to the NJCBAA, an association of business schools in two or four year NJ colleges and universities.

Our goal is to support and celebrate students and faculty from New Jersey in the business fields. Students benefit through sharing of ideas and information amongst the schools and through the partnerships that have developed between the two and four-year schools. These partnerships have made transferring not only easy, but academically sound. We honor the best and brightest students with our signature Honor Society induction at the State House every year. Faculty also benefit by participating in our Bright Ideas Award event where they are recognized for the impact of their research on the business community. Not only do they receive an honor, but they have an opportunity to meet and develop relationships with faculty around NJ. This is a unique organization and we’re proud to say – it’s made in New Jersey!

NJCBAA Honor Society

At its Fall 2003 Meeting at Middlesex County College, the New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association (NJCBAA) established a statewide honor society for students studying business at both the two and four-year colleges in New Jersey. The idea for establishing a society was proposed by the Dean of the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University, Karen Boroff. Working on the Subcommittee to form the Society was Dean Karen Boroff, Dean Fred Champlin of Ramapo College, Dr. Nate Himmelstein of Essex County College, Dr. Rob Quade of Centenary College, and Dean Edward Schoen of Rowan University. Each year, the top 1% of undergraduate students pursuing degrees in business are extended an invitation to join this most prestigious honor society. The NJCBAA members are proud to be able to recognize the outstanding academic achievements of our young business professionals.

The 2019 ceremony will take place on Friday, May 3, 10:00am, Middlesex County College, West Hall Building, Parkview Room.

Bright Ideas Awards

The Bright Ideas Award celebrates exceptional business teaching and research. Each year, the New Jersey Policy Research Organization (NJPRO) and the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University, collaborate to produce the annual Publications of New Jersey Business Faculty. The volumes include abstracts and citations from faculty members from business schools within colleges and universities around the state. This is a compilation of scholarly research on business-related issues that are relevant and educational to New Jersey firms. It celebrates the business intellectual capital at colleges of business within the state. From these articles, a distinguished panel of Deans and business people, chose certain articles as “Bright Ideas Research Awards” recognizing outstanding research within the volume. In addition, “Teaching Notes Awards” have been presented to faculty members providing valuable ideas to the classroom.
