For the fourth year in a row, graduates from The Gerald P. Buccino '63 Center for Leadership Development have a 100 percent placement rate. The twenty-two business students have been accepted into graduate schools or have secured full-time positions in well-known organizations such as IBM, JPMorgan Chase, Deloitte and Google - establishing Seton Hall and the Stillman School of Business as a place where new generations of business leaders learn.
"This placement rate speaks highly to who these students are and what they have achieved," said Michael Reuter, director of The Gerald P. Buccino '63 Center for Leadership Development. "I am so proud of all of them. The next part of their magnificent journey begins, and the best is yet to come."
The Leadership Program's placement rate is reflective of the University's strong placement, which is significantly higher than the national average, and is the result of the rigors of the Leadership Program.
With the guidance of Director Michael Reuter, Stillman School faculty and Leadership Council members, the students are trained for success from day one. They take leadership courses above and beyond their School of Business course load, secure multiple internships prior to graduation, and work on projects with Leadership Council members, of which there are 100 and many of whom are from the world's leading organizations. Some Leadership students even participate in study abroad opportunities, which provide exposure to international organizations and include meetings with foreign business professionals.
The caliber of the Leadership Program has also been recognized at a national level. This year, The Buccino Center earned, for the second year in a row, a #1 ranking in the Leadership 500 Excellence Awards sponsored by HR.com. Specifically, The Center was named the #1 Certificate Program with Emphasis on Leadership/Organizational Development.
Director Reuter also received an award for his excellence. The Gibbons Diversity Initiative presented him with its Trendsetter Award, placing him among the world's top leadership practitioners committed to developing leaders across the human resources, leadership and organizational development disciplines.
