“Dean Rosman brings extensive experience to NSU and has a proven track record of success,” said Dr. George Hanbury, President and CEO of Nova Southeastern University. “We look forward to his leadership as he takes the helm of the College of Business.”

In this position, Dr. Rosman will be responsible for developing and enhancing the college’s strategic initiatives, long-term planning and policy setting.

Dr. Rosman most recently served as dean and professor in the Silberman College of Business at Fairleigh Dickinson University, overseeing programs at its two New Jersey campuses (Metro and Florham) and the Vancouver, British Columbia campus. He led the development of new academic minors targeted to non-business majors and new online graduate degrees. In addition, Dr. Rosman worked with faculty to create minors addressing specific industry needs and business courses tailored for the arts.

He has been actively involved in fundraising, helping secure more than $3.5 million. Rosman’s outreach efforts have included actively engaging the College’s alumni, forming a “Next Gen” Board of Advisors, and creating signature fundraising events such the anniversary of the naming of the College and its successor event, a Hall of Fame dinner.

Prior to joining FDU in 2014, Dean Rosman was the Dean of the College of Management at LIU Post (2012-2104) and a faculty member at the University of Connecticut (1989-2012). While at UConn, he was the founding director of the MS in Accounting Program and served as director from 1998 to 2012. In 2002, this program became the University of Connecticut’s first asynchronous online graduate degree.

Dean Rosman’s primary research focus has been on how decision makers use information with the objective of identifying ways to improve decision behavior. He has published research in the Journal of Accounting and Economics; Journal of Accounting, Auditing and Finance; Auditing: A Journal of Theory and Practice; Academy of Management Journal; Journal of Behavioral Decision Making; Journal of Business Venturing; Journal of Business Research; Issues in Accounting Education; Behavioral Research in Accounting; Review of Accounting and Finance; and Research in Accounting Regulation.

“I am honored to have been selected to serve as the next dean for NSU’s College of Business,” Dr. Rosman said. “I look forward to helping the college provide students with a competitive edge as we continue to develop new impactful programs focused on providing competitive career advantages to our students. Mr. Huizenga left an amazing legacy both in the business world and in the world of higher education at NSU – my goal is to live up to that legacy by helping today’s students become tomorrow leaders.”

The United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) has recognized Dr. Rosman for developing best practices in online education (2007) and for excellence in distance learning teaching (2011) and he was awarded UConn’s highest teaching distinction, University Fellow, in 2001.
