A Tradition of Success
ASA's modest roots began in 1985 with a professor and 12 students in a small Brooklyn classroom. Known then as 'Advanced Software Analysis', the College focused on computer programming, as New York had a dire shortage of qualified mainframe programmers at that time.
Since then, the college has grown to more than 3000 students, 20 programs of study, and 2 large, centrally-located campuses in midtown Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn. Today, in addition to computers, our programs focus on the rapidly-growing industries of healthcare, business and criminal justice.
Over the years, as technology revolutionized how every major industry operates, ASA created and updated programs of study to meet new market needs. Consistent with the demands and capabilities of our student body, which includes highly motivated and mature immigrants, ASA programs have always featured a "hands-on" training component
In 1999, ASA received authorization from the New York State Board of Regents to confer degrees in accounting, computer programming and information technology and medical assisting.
