Fayetteville State University No. 66 in Latest SSRN Business School Rankings
The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) lists Fayetteville State University’s School (FSU) of Business and Economics at number 66 among its latest rankings of the top 1,000 U.S. Business Schools. The school is also ranked number 115 in the world.
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 66th 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.
“FSU’s School of Business and Economics continues to demonstrate its status as a world-class program with a world-class faculty,” said FSU Chancellor James A. Anderson. “Everyone in the school from the dean to the faculty members to the support staff has played vital roles in helping FSU become one of the best and most highly respected programs in the world. I am especially grateful to the faculty for their continued productivity and scholarship. It is because of their hard work that we have achieved this status.”
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.
