Employers Association of New Jersey (EANJ) and Fairleigh Dickinson’s Silberman College of Business Announce New Partnership
Teaneck, NJ (November 11, 2003) — A new educational partnership has been formed by EANJ (Employers Association of New Jersey), the only nonprofit association in the state dedicated exclusively to helping employers make sound and responsible employment decisions, and Fairleigh Dickinson’s Silberman College of Business.
The new partnership allows EANJ members to benefit from a $100 per graduate credit tuition reduction on all business degree programs within the Silberman College. There is also a 10 percent reduction on all non-credit business certificate programs. Other benefits include specially priced in-house training and non-credit programs as well as opportunities for invitations to Silberman lectures and events, research, student business projects, internships and MBA recruiting.
According to John Sarno, EANJ’s President, the biggest challenge facing the state’s employers in a global economy is the ability to increase the knowledge content of products and services. Investment in the state’ human capital is essential, he says. “We hope that this new business-education partnership will be a prototype for how New Jersey employers, including small business, will achieve and maintain world-class status,” Sarno says.
Dr. David Steele, dean of the Silberman College, said, “Through this new educational business partnership, EANJ is offering members the tools to build employees’ skills sets, develop a company’s intellectual capital and improve the retention of high-potential employees.”
EANJ members have the opportunity to select graduate business programs that range from the M.S. in Accounting program to a broad list of MBA programs including entrepreneurial studies, finance, global management, human resource management, international business, management, marketing and pharmaceutical management studies.
Two executive MBA programs are offered — one in management for executives and the other in health systems management for executives. For employees who have not yet taken the GMAT, there is an “MBA Jump Start” program and a series of post-MBA certificate studies programs.
EANJ has been serving employers in New Jersey since 1916. More than 1,000 employers throughout the state are members — from small, family-owned businesses to multinational corporations.
Fairleigh Dickinson University is the largest private university in New Jersey and the Silberman College of Business is accredited by AACSB International-—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB is the premier business school accrediting body.
