Three members of the Class of 2023 have the distinction of being inducted into the highly selective New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association (NJCBAA) Honor Society. The NJCBAA is reserved for the top one percent of undergraduate students from both two and four year colleges and universities pursuing degrees in business.

Aanyah Cox (Business Administration), Lissette Fuentes (Accounting), and Michael Serrano (Business Administration) are this year’s inductees from Essex County College.

“It is such an honor to be inducted into NJCBAA. I was very excited when I learned I would be a part of this prestigious group,” said Aanyah, who has transferred to the Rutgers University School in Newark. The Newark resident’s goal is to become a CPA. She earned a 3.92 grade point average at ECC.

Lissette, who has a perfect 4.0 GPA, is one of the Class of 2023’s Assistant Marshals. “I was very surprised when I got word I was selected.  I want to thank the faculty at ECC for helping me achieve this honor.” She is transferring to Thomas Edison State University.

Michael, a U.S. Army veteran from Bloomfield who graduated with a 3.95 GPA, said “I’ve received so much support from my time at ECC. I’m glad I started here.” He has transferred to Rutgers University-Newark, where he is majoring in Management Information Systems.

“Congratulations to our newest NJCBAA Honor Society inductees. This is wonderful and outstanding news,” said ECC’s President, Dr. Augustine A. Boakye

“The professors in the Business Division have been instrumental in bringing out the best in our students and challenging them to achieve new heights. In previous years, our students have gone on to represent the top one percent at their four-year university for the same award,” said Professor Germaine Albuquerque, Chair of the Business Division.
