Open House August 9 Launches Fairleigh Dickinson University MBA Courses Taught at Middlesex County College

Teaneck, NJ (July 18, 2005) — For business professionals who live or work in Middlesex County, a new opportunity for graduate study begins this fall.

Fairleigh Dickinson University will offer MBA courses at Middlesex County College in Edison for the first time. This new initiative builds on the Community College Partnership between the two institutions.

On August 9, an FDU Graduate Business Open House will be held at MCC from 6-8 p.m. in Edison Hall, room 151. The open house will feature a guest speaker, Career Coach Eli Amdur, speaking on career management skills for pharmaceutical professionals. FDU business faculty will also be available to answer questions, discuss the program and supply application materials. Light refreshments will be served.

According to Dr. Donald Zimmerman, executive director of the Center for Healthcare Management Studies in FDU’s Silberman College of Business, “Middlesex County College in Edison is in the center of the state’s pharmaceutical industry — we are pleased to be able to bring our AACSB-accredited program and courses to this site and serve graduate students with a convenient location.”

In September a Fairleigh Dickinson graduate course in financial accounting, which is a core course for the MBA, will be held at MCC. Additionally, a graduate course in pharmaceutical marketing and product development will be taught at the Edison location.

For many professionals in the pharmaceutical industry, the FDU degree — MBA in Pharmaceutical Management — has been a leader in the field of pharmaceutical education, enrolling students from more than 40 leading pharmaceutical and chemical companies.
