FDU’s Silberman College of Business featured in the Princeton Review’s “Best 294 Business Schools: 2017 Edition”

Madison, N.J. (October 24, 2016)- Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Silberman College of Business is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles the school in the new 2017 edition of its annual book, “The Best 294 Business Schools.”

“The recognition of FDU’S Silberman College by The Princeton Review places us among an elite group of universities that have strong academic programs. On behalf of the faculty, students, and staff of Silberman College of Business, I am pleased that Princeton Review has selected us to be included in their prestigious list for 2017. It truly shows how the quality of our students, the strength of our curriculum, and our outstanding faculty can be combined to create a remarkable experience for the students in Silberman College of Business,” states Andrew Rosman, Dean of Silberman College.

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, “We recommend FDU’s Silberman College of Business as one of the best to earn an MBA. We chose the 294 schools in this book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who reported on their experiences on our 80-question student survey for the book.” The Princeton Review 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 book’s two page school profiles have sections on academics, student life, admissions information and graduates’ employment data. 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 Reviewquotes 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 “small classroom size makes us feel like we’re getting individual attention.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools from 1 to 294 or name one business school best overall. The book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories including “The Toughest to Get Into” and “Best Career Prospects.”

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.
