Long Island Business Institute

Long Island Business Institute

Long Island Business Institute, founded 1968, with campuses located in Flushing Queens and Commack, Long Island, is pleased to announce the establishment of a downtown Manhattan Extension Site, located at 408 Broadway, just south of Canal Street.   The college is offering Associates degrees and certificate programs and serving a community of over 1000 students, LIBI offers programs including Homeland Security and Security Management, Court Reporting, Elder Care, Digital Marketing, Hospitality Management, Office Management, Accounting, Business Management and ESL. Students have the opportunity to transfer to four-year colleges in the New York City area and the Northeastern region, as a result of LIBI’s formal agreements with multiple notable colleges and universities. Students will have access to the convenient Tribeca location as well as both the Queens and Long Island Campuses.   President Monica Foote of LIBI, who spearheaded the establishment of LIBI’s first Manhattan location, notes “the launch of an LIBI site in Tribeca, a crossroads of the financial and cultural heart of New York City, is the logical next step in the evolution of LIBI, which has focused on providing cutting-edge and in-demand career education”. College chairman Leon Lee states “the competitive programs we have offered at LIBI for over four decades are aimed at an underserved population, the career-minded student, and tailored to the needs of the New York City business and legal community, homeland security, and the growing elderly population. As we are closely aligned with these communities, we know that now is the appropriate time to establish a presence in Manhattan.”LIBI is entering the New York City financial district, filling a much-needed vacancy in quality post-secondary career education.   The mission of LIBI has been to provide affordable, high quality post-secondary education, which is especially needed in the current environment. Professors are typically practitioners, with extensive experience in their fields, a factor which LIBI’s administration feels differentiates the value of an LIBI education from a job placement standpoint. The emphasis on the transferability of an LIBI education either directly to the business world or to areas of further post-secondary education is a further differentiator: student choice at the end of his or her LIBI education is a major factor in students choosing to enter LIBI. The convenience of a downtown Manhattan location will be another strong draw and a further benefit to students.   LIBI offers generous scholarships and financial aid to students who qualify. In addition, LIBI offers membership to qualified students in the Alpha Beta Kappa National Honors Society. LIBI is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), one of the oldest and largest national accrediting bodies in the United States.   Apply now by calling: Manhattan Campus: 212-226-7300 Queens Campus: 718-939-5100

Our focus is to provide excellence in design education by combining classroom learning, practice, and accessibility to diverse communities. We offer professional and accredited degrees in architecture, interior architecture, landscape architecture, and design studies.   Founded in 1889 as a club for practicing architects in the local Boston area, the BAC has remained closely tied to the professional design community throughout its history. These connections allow the College to uphold its founding principles of integrated design education. Our faculty are both teachers and practicing professionals, and we maintain a commitment to combining academic and experiential, practice-based learning.   Through the BAC’s dynamic learning model, students acquire academic knowledge in the classroom while receiving applied learning through practical experiences in the field.
