Marcum LLP Wins Two Awards from Adelphi University
New York City, NY –Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm, was honored with two awards from Adelphi University. The Firm was named Employer of the Year, and Mark S. Fogel, Marcum's Chief Human Resources Officer, received the Adelphi University Part-Time Faculty Teaching Excellence Award.
Employer of the Year
The Adelphi University Center for Career Development presented the 2013 Employer of the Year Award to Marcum at the Fifth Annual Alumni and Employer Appreciation Breakfast on May 9. Marcum was selected based on the Firm's active participation in the Center's career fairs, interview training, internship and other programs.
"Adelphi's Career Development Center is focused on cultivating tomorrow's business leaders. They prepare their students not just for academic success, but for success in the business world. This is highly consistent with Marcum's approach to professional development at our Firm, where we devote considerable resources to training and mentoring in all of our U.S. and overseas offices," said Angela Ramos, Human Resources Manager, Marcum's liaison with Adelphi.
In addition to participating in campus events, Marcum provides summer internships in accounting and human resources for Adelphi business students annually. The Firm also recruits Adelphi graduates for entry level professional accounting positions.
Teaching Excellence Award
Mark Fogel has taught graduate-level courses in Adelphi's MBA program and has been a panelist and lecturer at business school events since 2011. Dr. Gayle D. Insler, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, announced on May 6 that Mr. Fogel, an adjunct professor in the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business, received the 2012-2013 Part-Time Faculty Teaching Excellence Award.
"Adjunct Professor Fogel's award for Excellence in Teaching is a testament to the innovation, real-world experience, interactive tools and research perspectives he brings to Adelphi's Willumstad School of Business students. Mark Fogel not only shares his extensive HR experience in his classroom, but his commitment to educate the next generation of business leaders. I know that Professor Fogel is proud to have the opportunity to serve as faculty, and we are delighted to have him," Dr. Insler said.
"A key challenge with graduate business students, most of whom take evening classes, is finding a way to bring them into the inner workings of HR and other functional departments during normal business hours. Since I can't bring the class into the business world, I bring the business world into the classroom, by utilizing highly interactive and engaging learning exercises and incorporating vibrant guest lectures by experts from diverse operating areas," Mr. Fogel said.
His courses this year included Developing World-Class Human Resources and Social Media.
"As a major employer on Long Island and a leader in the accounting industry, Marcum values our partnership with Adelphi University and the opportunity it gives us to connect with the next generation of business leaders. We are deeply honored to be recognized by the university for our contributions," said Carolyn Mazzenga, Long Island Partner-in-Charge and National Leader of Marcum's High Net Worth Individuals Practice group.
