"In the Business Administration program, we spend a great deal of time addressing current business issues as they pertain to our class topics. Theory on the class subject is taught for a baseline of understanding, but we segway quickly to how this all works in the field. My two main concentrations of subject areas are marketing and management. These areas of study directly impact the success or failure of organizations in our world. It is exciting for the students to observe current businesses use the techniques that they are studying."
-- Steven Boucher, Assistant Professor of Business

In 2014, Michael Fanelli was promoted to partner at McGladrey, LLP. “I am now an owner in the company,” he explains. “I lead merger and acquisition due diligence projects, key companywide initiatives, people management, all as a partner in the fifth largest accounting, tax and consulting firm in the US.”
Fanelli is also one of the youngest partners of the firm. “You have to deliver quality work and interface well with clients, develop team members and promote yourself, too, as well as management taking notice of you... It’s really a people business, the higher you go.”
In part, Fanelli credits Herkimer College for his success today. “With hard work and dedication, you can get to where you want to be quickly.”
