EDUCATION UPDATE GUEST EDITORIAL

Dr. Kimberly R. Cline
President, LIU

LIU is embracing entrepreneurship by immersing students in a culture of engaged learning beginning with world-class faculty who are experts in their field and who use a unique blend of classroom learning with real-world practice. In today’s rapidly changing, technology-driven, highly competitive job market, one of the top traits hiring managers look for is entrepreneurship. LIU students develop their own businesses through our startup incubator, work at our student-run businesses, make use of our academic research centers, and gauge the financial markets at our real-time trading floors.

The 2015-16 academic year marks the beginning of Dr. Edward Rogoff’s tenure as the Dean of the LIU Brooklyn School of Business, Public Administration, and Information Sciences. Dr. Rogoff has a long and distinguished track record as a visionary in business education, having directed a student entrepreneurship program at a top-tier university. His entrepreneurial skill and educational creativity have been recognized by the United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship, which named Dr. Rogoff Outstanding Educator of the Year in 2010.

The LIU Brooklyn campus is distinctly advantaged by location and accessibility. Exceptional opportunities exist forming potential synergies with leaders and organizations in real estate, technology, and arts activity and commerce. Through our multi-faceted partnership with the owners of the Barclays Center, our students attend on site classes and have the opportunity to intern at this state-of-the-art entertainment venue.

The College of Management at LIU Post including the School of Business, School of Professional Accountancy and School of Computer Science, Innovation and Management Engineering is ranked among the "Best 296 Business Schools" for the 13th consecutive year by The Princeton Review. Under the leadership of the school’s new dean, Dr. Robert Valli, an internationally-renowned authority on innovation ecosystems who created and directed the Kauffman Global Foundation for Advancing Innovation, Dr. Valli is ideally suited to foster an entrepreneurial spirit on the LIU Post campus, with a history of navigating complex markets and nurturing innovation.

LIU’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation brings students together, inspiring and supporting their creative efforts with resources to help them turn their visions into reality. Many of these resources are found in LIU Post’s on-campus Incubator, which features elements of the shared workspaces that house New York’s vibrant startup community. LIU has also invited the entrepreneurial community onto campus through LIU Post’s participation in Start-Up NY. LIU is the first private university in the region to participate in Start-Up NY.

Our students intern at the Big Four accounting firms, Fortune 500 companies, and technology firms. LIU cites many notable alumni who are highly-successful business leaders and entrepreneurs including; Jorge M. Perez, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Related Properties, and benefactor of the Pérez Art Museum in Miami; Howard Lorber President and CEO, Vector Group; Chairman, Douglas Elliman Real Estate; Chairman, Nathan’s Famous; John Kanas, Chairman, President and CEO BankUnited Inc.;  Gary Winnick, Chairman and CEO, Winnick & Company; Al Kahn, Co-Owner of CraneKahn LLC; former Chairman and CEO of 4Kids Entertainment; Founder of the National Law Enforcement and Firefighters Children’s Foundation; Sarabeth Levine, Founder and Chairwoman of Sarabeth’s Kitchen; Michael P.
