Fairleigh Dickinson University’s two New Jersey locations (e.g., Metropolitan Campus, Florham Campus) are either a short bus ride or commuter train ride to Upper Manhattan or Madison Square Gardens, respectively. The greater New York/New Jersey area is a global hub of business and commerce: a center for banking and finance, retailing, world trade, transportation, fine chemical and biotechnology, tourism, real estate, new media, traditional media, advertising, legal services, accountancy, insurance, theater, fashion, and the arts in the United States.
With Silberman College’s “immersive” classrooms and “career-focused” co-curricular activities, we offer opportunities that emphasize market-based expertise that engages with our students on an ongoing and non-trivial basis.
