FDU’s Silberman College of Business Recognized Internationally by Eduniversal

MADISON, NJ (November 8, 2011)—Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Silberman College of Business has been recognized as an “Excellent Business School,” according to the 2011 Eduniversal survey, which ranked the top 1,000 business schools worldwide.

The Silberman College of Business received “three palmes,” indicating excellence, national strength, and international links. Palmes substitute for stars, which are typically used in rankings; a multicolored palme is part of Eduniversal’s logo. 

“We are pleased to hear of Eduniversal’s recognition of Silberman College as an “Excellent Business School,”” said William M. Moore, dean of Silberman College of Business. “This is another validation of our belief about the importance of global education. Being committed to an academic environment where learning seamlessly spans cultural boundaries continues to excite us.”

Eduniversal asked deans and directors of the 1,000 best academic institutions to participate in the 2011 Deans Vote Survey which asked: “Which business school(s) would you recommend to anyone wishing to study in this country?”

Every dean’s vote was converted into a recommendation rate that students and other professionals in the academic field can use to evaluate and compare the academic institutions. The results of the Deans Survey 2011 were officially announced at the 4th Eduniversal World Convention in Shanghai, China on Oct. 13-15, 2011.

Eduniversal was created by SMBG, the leading company in France in student orientation; www.eduniversal.com was launched October 2007 to serve as a search engine for higher education projects and international recruitment. 

The Silberman College of Business is a tri-campus, international, AACSB-accredited college of Fairleigh Dickinson University. The college offers undergraduate and graduate programs at the College at Florham, Madison, NJ, and the Metropolitan Campus, Teaneck, NJ and undergraduate programs in at FDU-Vancouver, FDU’s Canadian campus. The Association  to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is the world’s premier business school accrediting body, with fewer than 35 percent of the business schools in the U.S. earning AACSB accreditation.
