The Gerald P. Buccino '63 Center for Leadership Development at the Stillman School of Business earned, for the fourth year in a row, a #1 ranking in the LEAD Awards sponsored by HR.com. Specifically, the Buccino Center was named the #1 Certificate Program with Emphasis on Leadership/Organizational Development.
The prestigious LEAD awards recognize the world's top leadership practitioners and programs committed to developing leaders across the human resources, leadership and organizational development disciplines. Hundreds of organizations and programs nationwide apply for the awards each year.
"To win four years in a row is a testament to the hard work and dedication of so many and to the leadership learning and development taking place at Seton Hall," said Michael Reuter, director of The Buccino Center. "One of the Program's greatest strengths, and one that is foundational to its culture, is that our students, alumni and executive council members work closely together and complement one another, creating a mutual benefit for the growth and development of our entire leadership family. It takes a team and we have a magnificent team."
Leadership students are trained for success from day one. They take leadership courses above and beyond their business course load and secure multiple internships prior to graduation. They also work on projects with Leadership Council members, of which there are more than 100, many of whom are from the world's leading organizations and who reflect a rich diversity of thought, disciplines and backgrounds. Some Leadership students even participate in study abroad opportunities, which provide exposure to international organizations and include meetings with foreign business professionals. As a result, graduates of the program typically have a 100 percent placement rate and go on to be servant leaders in their communities and organizations.
"Our Buccino Leadership Program is a shining example of the caliber of our students and 'What Great Minds Can Do,'" said Joyce Strawser, dean of the Stillman School of Business. "It also supports Stillman's commitment to 'transforming concepts into business practice,' and our focus on developing students as principled business leaders."
