An accountant and expert in online learning is the new dean of LIU Post's College of Management, university officials have announced.
Andrew Rosman, a native of Levittown and a Hofstra University graduate, will help lead the school's expansion of online course offerings for graduate and nontraditional students.
"I'm hoping to bring a lot of what we do very well face-to-face to an online learning environment and expose more of the country to LIU's programs," said Rosman, who assumed his post July 1.
Rosman, 53, came to LIU Post from the University of Connecticut, where he was executive director of online education for the School of Business, director of the master of science in accountancy program, and director of the internship program.
He was one of two faculty members from UConn's School of Business to have been designated a teaching fellow, the university's highest teaching award, and received two awards from the United States Distance Learning Association. He has published 21 research papers in accounting, management and psychology journals, and made several presentations on teaching advances to academic audiences.
Rosman, graduated from Division Avenue High School in Levittown in 1976 and Hofstra in 1980. At Hofstra, he earned a bachelor's degree in business administration, majoring in accounting and minoring in journalism.
He worked at the financial firm Touche Ross & Co. and at the Financial Accounting Standards Board, an organization in Norwalk, Conn., that sets rules governing the preparation of financial reports by nongovernmental entities. He earned a doctorate in business at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989.
Rosman and his wife Susan, a native of Huntington, have three children.
