FDU’S Silberman College of Business Featured in the Princeton Review’s "Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition"

MADISON, N.J. (October 11, 2012)– FDU’s Silberman College of Business is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2013 edition of its book, "The Best 296 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, on sale now, $22.99). 

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend FDU’s Silberman College of Business as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA. We selected the schools we profile in this book – 280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international -- based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book."

“Silberman College of Business is proud to once again be named to The Princeton Review’s Annual Business School Rankings,” said James Almeida, interim dean of Silberman College of Business. “Our students, faculty and staff make such a recognition possible. Receiving external recognition is always rewarding, and we will continue to prepare students to succeed in a business climate that is increasingly dynamic, complex, and global.”

"The Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition" 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. They quote from students attending FDU’s Silberman College of Business who say that the schools’ professors are its “greatest strengths,” and that the emphasis on global education gives, “every possible view of business and provides students with insights from different points of view.”

FDU’s Silberman College of Business students who were surveyed agreed that, "Cutting-edge classes and solid preparation in communication/interpersonal skills and doing business in a global economy,” were all strengths of the program.

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. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten lists are based entirely or partly on The Princeton Review's surveys of students attending the schools in the book. A few lists, such as "Best Career Prospects," use both student survey and institutional data. One list, "Toughest to Get Into," is based solely on institutional data. The lists in the book are posted at www.princetonreview.com/business-school-rankings.aspx.

The Silberman College of Business is accredited by AACSB International —The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the premier business accreditation body. The College boasts more than 43,000 alumni, and for more than 50 years, graduates of the Silberman College have gone on to key management positions in business throughout the United States and the world.

"The Best 296 Business Schools" is one of more than 150 Princeton Review books published by Random House, Inc. The line includes "The Best 168 Law Schools" (also published in October 2012 and also featuring 11 ranking lists primarily based on surveys of students attending the schools in the book).  Other Princeton Review books include "The Best 168 Medical Schools," plus guides to graduate school admission exams and application essays.  Among them: "Business School Essays That Made a Difference."

The Princeton Review is also known for its many categories of college rankings, its classroom and online test-prep courses, tutoring, and its other education services.  Headquartered in Framingham, MA, The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
