Romano On Teaching: Farmingdale State College

Posted: August 18, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

Robert J. Romano is pleased to announce that he has accepted an appointment as a Visiting Professor at Farmingdale State College in their Sport Management Department.

Farmingdale State College, as a result of the sports industry expanding as rapidly as it has over the past decade, offers a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management and is the only public college on Long Island to offer such.

With a focus on business, classes are geared toward careers that include sport marketing and journalism, event management, college athletics, sport law, fitness facility management, and camp director.

Companies which hire sport management graduates include high school and university athletic departments, professional sport organizations, non-profit agencies (e.g., YMCA, community centers), athletic clubs and sports complexes, parks and recreational facilities, for-profit businesses that market and manage sports events and teams/leagues, the NCAA and other governing bodies (local, national, and international).

“Sport Management has been popular for a number of years now so we expect enrollment in this program to be quite strong,” said Farmingdale Provost Dr. Lucia Cepriano. “In fact, we have hired two full-time business professors and have an outstanding group of adjunct professors who have worked with organizations such as the U.S. Open and the Northeast Athletic Association.”

Full-time enrollment at Farmingdale has increased 70 percent since 2000. The College ranks among the top 100 public colleges in the nation in the earnings power of its graduates, according to a 2009 analysis conducted by payscale.com. The College has also ranked among the top five safest campuses in the country according to the last two analyses by The Daily Beast.  The campus is in the midst of a $185 million construction and renovation project and will be opening a new Campus Center in 2012. Farmingdale also expects to break ground on a new building for the School of Business later this year. Farmingdale will celebrate its 100th Anniversary during the 2011-12 academic year.
