FDU’s Silberman College of Business featured in the Princeton Review’s “Best 295 Business Schools: 2015 Edition”

 

Madison, N.J. (October 9, 2014) – Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Silberman College of Business is one of the nation's most outstanding business schools, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review. The Princeton Review features the school in the new 2015 edition of its book, “The Best 295 Business Schools.”
 
“Princeton Review’s recognition of FDU’s Silberman College as one of the best business schools for 2014 places us among an elite group of universities that all boast strong academic programs. We are particularly proud of our faculty who have developed and deliver meaningful courses for our students,” says Andrew Rosman, dean of the Silberman College of Business.
 
“Beyond that, we believe this recognition speaks to the important activities that are provided to students outside the classroom including our Professional Development Program (PDP), which brings alumni and members of the business community to campus to network with students and discuss careers and opportunities including the path to successful entrepreneurship. The combination of strong academics and meaningful opportunities for students to grow and excel are sources of pride,” continues Rosman.
 
“The Best 295 Business Schools: 2015 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions. In the profile on FDU’s Silberman College of Business, the Princeton Review editors describe the school’s faculty as “a mix of global businessmen and local success stories.” The Princeton Review quotes from students attending FDU’s Silberman College of Business who were surveyed for the book. Among the student comments, “the classroom atmosphere is spectacular” and that professors “spend an extraordinary amount of time outside of the classroom helping and guiding students.”
 
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 a business school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book 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 student survey for the book.” The Princeton Review's survey asks business school students about their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.
 
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 295, or name one business school best overall.
 
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 Princeton Review is known for its guides to colleges and to standardized tests, its classroom and online test-prep courses, tutoring, and other education services. Headquartered in Framingham, MA, The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
