FDU’S Silberman College of Business Featured in The Princeton Review's "BEST 294 BUSINESS SCHOOLS: 2012 EDITION"
MADISON, N.J. (October 13, 2011)– 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 2012 edition of its book, "The Best 294 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, on sale date October 11, 2012, $22.99).
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend FDU’s Silberman College of Business to readers of our book and users of our site, www.PrincetonReview.com, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA. We chose the 294 business schools in this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our 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 William M. Moore, dean of Silberman College of Business. “Of course 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 ever more global and challenging.”
"The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 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. In the profile on FDU’s Silberman College of Business, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as: "Programs are suited to students with well-defined career goals." They quote from students attending FDU’s Silberman College of Business who say, "FDU has a strong focus on global learning which is very important in doing business today,” and that the, “professors are very knowledgeable, easy to approach, take time to answer any queries you may have, and drive you to achieve perfection."
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's 80-question survey for the book asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 294, 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 on The Princeton Review's surveys of 19,000 students attending the 294 business schools profiled in the book. (Only schools that permitted The Princeton Review to survey their students were eligible for consideration for these lists.) Conducted during the 2010-11, 2009-10, and 2008-09 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online. One list, "Toughest to Get Into," is based solely on institutional data. (All schools in the book were eligible for consideration for this list.) The lists are posted at www.PrincetonReview.com.
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 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition" also has advice on applying to business schools and funding the degree. It is one of the more than 150 Princeton Review books published by Random House.
