Silberman College of Business Featured in The Princeton Review’s “Best 296 Business Schools: 2009 Edition”

Teaneck, NJ (October 21, 2008) — FDU’s Silberman College of Business is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review.  The New York-based education services company features Silberman College of Business in the just-published 2009 edition of its “Best 296 Business Schools.”

AACSB Accredited
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP-Publishing, "We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools.  We are pleased to recommend FDU’s Silberman College of Business to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA."  

“Best 296 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services.  In the profile on Fairleigh Dickinson, the Princeton Review editors quote from students attending it who say they appreciate the “flexibility of the program to accommodate working schedules " and feel FDU offers a “well-rounded program” with a “breadth of concentrations.” One student said, “I am a mid-career manager and am older than most of the students. However, I do not feel out of place. All of my classes have been great, and the diversity of experiences has resulted in great learning sessions.”     

In a "Survey Says. . ." sidebar in the profile, The Princeton Review lists topics that FDU students it surveyed for the book were in most agreement about.   The list includes: "solid preparation in general management, communication/interpersonal skills, and presentation skills" and  "helpful alumni."   The Princeton Review's 80-question survey asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.   

William M. Moore, dean of the Silberman College of Business, said, “Our business education program is consistently recognized for its quality, currency and relevance. We are pleased to once again be recognized by The Princeton Review.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall. Conducted during the 2007-08, 2006-07, and 2005-06 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online.

The MBA program at the Silberman College of Business is available at both North Jersey FDU campuses and offers majors in entrepreneurship; finance; human resource management; international business; management, including concentrations in corporate communications, global business (1-year program), and information systems; marketing; pharmaceutical management. Silberman also offers MBA programs for executives, including a concentration in healthcare and life sciences; and MS programs in accounting and taxation.
