Each fall the School of Management assembles its valued Stakeholders, including alumni, current students from all programs, community members, business leaders, members of the Executive Council and Business Advisory Board, NYIT administration, faculty and staff, and external and other academic personnel. This gathering is for the purpose of supporting the annual Stakeholders' Conference, an important assessment tool that the school utilizes for the purpose of collecting inputs across the diverse sets of participants and advancing standards of best practice.
The purpose of the annual Stakeholders' Conference is to identify historical benchmarks of performance for a select set of topics in higher education, ascertain where it currently stands concerning performance in these areas, and determine how it can improve towards furthering its mission and meeting the needs of its stakeholder consistencies in the future.
Each Stakeholder group provides a unique and critical component that the school utilizes during the conference:
- Alumni provide a historical perspective that permits the school to benchmark past performance and evaluate its historical performance;
- Current students and the Student Advisory Board present the current perspective of how the school is performing;
- Community and business leaders offer performance of expectations in the workforce and the community, at large; and
- External academics offer perspectives on similar issues and how they are approached at their peer and aspirant institutions.
Taken together, this information in forms the school so that it can make effective decisions on its developmental plan for improvement. reports on outcomes for the school are also provided to the participants of the conference following one year. It is in this manner that the school ensures its accountability to its Stakeholder groups. Information on past Stakeholder Conferences are provided in the links within the navigation bar.
