About the NJCBAA Honor Society

At its Fall 2003 Meeting at Middlesex County College, the New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association (NJCBAA) established a statewide honor society for students studying business at both the two and four-year colleges in New Jersey. The idea for establishing a society was proposed by the Dean of the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University, Karen Boroff. Working on the Subcommittee to form the Society was Dean Karen Boroff, Dean Fred Champlin of Ramapo College, Dr. Nate Himmelstein of Essex County College, Dr. Rob Quade of Centenary College, and Dean Edward Schoen of Rowan University. Each year, the top 1% of undergraduate students pursuing degrees in business are extended an invitation to join this most prestigious honor society. The NJCBAA members are proud to be able to recognize the outstanding academic achievements of our young business professionals.


The Annual NJCBAA Honor Society Inductions are typically held at the NJ State House in Trenton but have moved to virtual ceremonies since the Spring of 2020. This year’s program will also be held virtually.  Expected audience members include professors, deans, administrators, students, and families from business programs at colleges and universities across New Jersey.
