University Overview

Welcome to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s newest campus, in beautiful downtown Vancouver. The University opened its fourth campus in September 2007 and already students from over 60 countries are benefiting from FDU’s long proven vision of preparing world citizens through global education, and in an intensive and student-centered learning environment students develop productive and insightful lives as citizens of an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.

The Vancouver Campus is located within the vibrant district of Yaletown, close to the Vancouver Public Library and surrounded by the hustle and bustle of downtown life, wonderful restaurants, incredible sporting venues, superb shops, and numerous coffee houses. Vancouver is indeed a very exciting place to live and learn, and the Vancouver campus is now part of that excitement.

Fairleigh Dickinson University is the largest private not-for-profit university in the state of New Jersey (USA) with approximately 12,000 graduate and undergraduate students and more than 100 degree programs ranging from the Associate of Arts (A.A.) to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The University was founded in 1942 and has four campuses. The University’s two main campuses are located in New Jersey: the Metropolitan Campus in Teaneck and Hackensack (just minutes from New York City) and the Florham Campus in Florham Park and Madison. Its two remaining campuses are international in location:one in Wroxton, Oxfordshire, England (established in 1965) and the other in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The Vancouver Campus offers accredited professional degree programs to international students with majors in business administration and information technology. Students majoring in business administration are required to complete a concentration in international business and may elect to complete a second concentration in entrepreneurship, finance, information technology, or marketing. Students majoring in information technology typically complete a minor in business administration. They also have optional concentrations in Network and Systems Administration or Web Technology. The University also offers a Bachelor of Arts – Individualized Studies degree. A Master in Administrative Science degree and a Master of Hospitality Management Studies are offered at the graduate level. In addition, the Vancouver campus offers a Pre-University Program which provides advanced English-language training for students who meet the requirements for admission but require additional training in English (in speaking and/or writing) prior to matriculating in a degree program. The Vancouver campus boasts an excellent and dedicated core of full- and part-time faculty; a new, state-of-the art facility; small class sizes; close working relations between students, faculty and staff; and an intensive and unrivaled student support system focused on individual student success.

Fairleigh Dickinson University is delighted to join its partners in higher education in British Columbia to provide students with degree programs in Canada and to serve as a portal to other FDU campuses and partner universities around the world.

It is with great excitement that I invite you to learn more about our dynamic new campus in Vancouver, our unique degree programs, and our competitive scholarships and study grants. I look forward to the possibility of seeing you as a student at our Vancouver campus.
