EQUALITYBOWIE, MD - Bowie State University's (BSU) Dean of the College of Business Dr. Anthony C. Nelson was recently elected president of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Business Deans Roundtable. Dr. Nelson will serve a one-year term for the 2010-11 year.

The HBCU Business Deans Roundtable, established in 1999, consists of approximately 65 business programs across the country. The roundtable was formed to provide a forum for deans of HBCU business schools to collaborate on opportunities and challenges with expanding business programs and initiatives. The organization also works to develop strategic partnerships with various businesses to provide essential tools and resources for student success.

"The opportunities are easier to grasp and the challenges are easier to overcome when we collaborate with one another," said Dr. Nelson. "It is an honor and a privilege to serve this organization with its great membership, and I am proud to be representing Bowie State University while serving in this capacity."

As president, Dr. Nelson plans to extend the reach of the organization to business schools which serve minorities outside of the United States. He also hopes to enhance the roundtable's ability to exploit opportunities to internationalize its business programs and further develop fundraising efforts and partnerships with corporations, government and national organizations.

EQUALITY"Dean Nelson's background in business and higher education will benefit the HBCU Business Deans Roundtable," stated Dr. Stacey Franklin Jones, provost and vice president of academic affairs for BSU. "It is an excellent opportunity for our College of Business to expand its resources and partnerships and I am confident Dean Nelson will represent Bowie State University very well."

The College of Business at Bowie State University offers graduate and undergraduate programs in accounting, finance, economics, information systems, management, marketing and public administration. The College recently added a new program in information assurance for students who desire to pursue a Master of Science in management information systems. The program, designed to prepare students for careers in information security and other information technology fields, can easily be applied to positions in the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process that relate to information security. Click here for more information on the program.

Previously serving as program chair for the Annual HBCU Business Deans Roundtable Summit, Dr. Nelson came to BSU in 2007. He has over 20 years of higher education and corporate experience from several universities and organizations including Grambling State University, the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the University of South Florida. He has held a number of systems development and project management positions at National Steel, Inc., Champion International Paper, Inc. and Mellon Bank. He earned his doctorate in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh.
