Fayetteville State University Ranks No. 63 among Top U.S. Business Schools in SSRN Research Ranking
The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) lists Fayetteville State University’s School (FSU) of Business and Economics at number 63 among its latest rankings of top U.S. Business Schools.
SSRN is devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research and ranks schools “in an attempt to measure the scholarly impact of the authors currently affiliated with the organizations.” The SSRN rankings are based on the total number of faculty papers and citations downloaded, with the main ranking determined by the number of papers downloaded within the past year. FSU ranks 63rd and is among the top three in the state of North Carolina. Only Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill rank higher.
“I am absolutely thrilled about the latest ranking of our School of Business and Economics,” said FSU Chancellor James A. Anderson. “This lofty status demonstrates that scholars at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country realize the quality of the program that we have at Fayetteville State University. I applaud Dean Assad Tavakoli and his world-class faculty for all of their work they put forth in helping FSU achieve this placement among the nation’s best schools of business. Not only does FSU rank highly among some of the nation’s best colleges and universities, but it is also the only HBCU ranked in the top one hundred. All of this has been accomplished in less than two years. Faculty productivity and scholarship is one of the chief indicators of excellence.”
The School of Business and Economics is accredited by the AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB is one of the most prestigious and rigorous accrediting bodies for business programs in higher education. Currently, less than one-third of U.S. business programs and only five percent of the world’s business programs have earned AACSB accreditation. Receipt of this distinguished accreditation provides evidence that FSU’s School of Business and Economics has established itself as a leader among business schools.
FSU is a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina and the second-oldest public institution of higher education in the state. FSU offers nearly 60 degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. With nearly 6,000 students, Fayetteville State University is among the most diverse institutions in the nation.
