FDU's Silberman College of Business among Princeton Review's "Best 295 Business Schools: 2016 Edition"

Madison, N.J. (October 19, 2015) – Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Silberman College of Business is one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the 2016 edition of its book, “The Best 295 Business Schools.”

“On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of Silberman College of Business, I am delighted that Princeton Review has selected our degree programs for inclusion in their prestigious list of the Best 295 Business Schools for 2016. It is a testament to the quality of our student body, the strength of our program curricula, the outstanding credentials of our faculty, and the involvement of our alumni, which combined create an exceptional learning experience for students in the Silberman College of Business,” says Andrew J. Rosman, dean of Silberman College.

“We take great pride in emphasizing the application of theoretical principles to address contemporary business challenges across our majors but, now as well, in new academic minors in wealth management advisory, sustainability, digital marketing, and entrepreneurship. This ensures that our students earn their degree by supplementing a superior classroom experience with a number of co-curricular learning opportunities, and thus graduate with the skill sets that are most sought after by business organizations. We are honored that an exceptional organization such as The Princeton Review, having reviewed our program offerings, has decided that our programs deserve to be ranked among those of the best business schools in the nation,” continues Rosman.

Princeton Review’s Senior VP/Publisher Robert Franek recommends Silberman College of Business as “one of the best to earn an MBA. We chose the 295 schools in the book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools.” Additionally, the Princeton Review solicited, and greatly respects, the opinions of students attending these schools, who reported their experiences on an 80-question student survey for the book.

“The Best 295 Business Schools: 2016 Edition,” much like previous editions, includes a two-page profile on each of the schools, discussing their campus life, academics, career and placement services, and admissions info. The profile on Silberman College highlights the “individual attention” students receive, along with the college’s “spectacular [classroom] atmosphere” and diverse campus community, contributing to “a strong global business education.”

The Review notes that a majority of the faculty is “a mix of global businessmen and local success stories,” and that students find the much raved-about professors to be Silberman’s “greatest strength.” Students also appreciate the University’s ability to strike “a balance between academic, social and recreational aspects of student life,” and its “proximity to companies and New York,” which students find to be an asset for job placement.

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 an AACSB International accredited business school, among less than 35% of U.S. business schools holding the status from AACSB, which is the world’s preeminent accreditation authority for collegiate schools of business. 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.
