Gupta joins the school’s Board of Governors at an exciting time in its history. The school just announced that is had earned business accreditation for the H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship from AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
“When I unveiled NSU’s Vision, Mission, and Core Values, I challenged all the deans to work with their faculty and staff to obtain recognition from their respective, preeminent accrediting bodies,” said Dr. George Hanbury, NSU President and CEO. “It is now my privilege to announce that NSU has earned accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) – the world’s largest business education alliance.”
Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting learners, educators, and businesses worldwide.
Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally. As a result, less than six percent of the world’s schools offering business degree programs hold AACSB business accreditation. Through today’s ratification, a total of 980 institutions across 60 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation in business out of more than 16,000 worldwide.
Mr. Gupta graduated Magna Cum Laude and earned his Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering in 1987 and his Masters in Electrical Engineering in 1990 from the University of Toledo, Ohio, USA where his Master’s Thesis was funded by NASA Lewis Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. He earned his Masters of Business Administration in 1994 from the Stuart School of Business, at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, USA. He is a resident of Weston, Florida and is active in the local community.
