Executive Certificate of Business Administration (ECBA)

The world is experiencing rapid geopolitical and economic changes. While regional economies are increasingly integrated, companies are more challenged by diverse cultural environments, varied market needs, international competitors, and technological and product innovations. To survive the competition of the 21st century, companies must continuously learn, adapt, and innovate as quickly as the world around them. They often need to develop a business strategy in response to global competitors. Our Executive Certificate of Business Administration addresses these changes.

Since 1955, New York Institute of Technology has emphasized career-oriented professional education. Our graduates can be found working at leading business corporations and organizations such as Disney, CBA, General Electric, Merrill Lynch, PepsiCo, Verizon, and the Metropolitan Transit Authority. The President’s Medal has represented the institution’s highest level of honor. Past recipients include Richard Riley, former U.S. Secretary of Education, and Bill Gates, former Microsoft chairman and CEO. In Mr. Gates’ acknowledgment speech, he first introduced the concept of “I Generation” in discussion of the opportunities and challenges faced by the first generation of Americans to grow up with the Internet.
