FDU in Top 20

FDU Ranked Among Top 20 Entrepreneurship Programs

The Silberman College of Business has been recognized as one of the leading business schools in America for entrepreneurship. In the annual ranking of top entrepreneurship programs done by The Princeton Review and published in October in Entrepreneur Magazine, FDU’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program placed 7th out of more than 700 schools surveyed. In addition, the graduate entrepreneurship program ranked 19th.

“With the strong support of the Silberman College, we have integrated entrepreneurship into the curriculum and offer courses for non-business students as well,” said  James C. Barrood, Executive Director of the Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurial Studies. For almost 20 years, the Rothman Institute has been a leader in offering entrepreneurial majors on both the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as in offering a comprehensive list of courses.

“This recognition would not have been possible without the outstanding teaching, service, mentoring and research of our faculty and staff,” Barrood said. The Institute complements the academic programs with a full range of community outreach programs including seminars, business plan development programs, innovation workshops, mentoring initiatives, recognition events and high school programs – designed to help people succeed.

According to Barrood, the national ranking is a tribute to the innovative programs offered to students, entrepreneurs, executives, family businesses and the community. “As we have for the past 17 years, we will continue to foster entrepreneurship and innovation and help create future business leaders and a stronger, more successful New Jersey economy,” he said.
