Morristown, N.J. (May 24, 2018) – In December, the College of Saint Elizabeth received one of the highest possible ratings, a 12AA, from Dun & Bradstreet in a recent financial risk evaluation. This month, the College improved on that already impressive rating by now earning a 11AA ranking. This rating indicates that the College has a solid financial outlook for the next 12 months. Only 13% of U.S. businesses receive this ranking.
In order to determine an organization's financial outlook, Dun & Bradstreet analyzes four factors: viability score, portfolio comparison, data depth indicator and company profile. Each rating ranges between either 1-9 or A-M and the College has earned the highest possible rating in each category.
"We are proud to receive the highest ranking possible from Dun & Bradstreet," said CSE President Helen J. Streubert. "We have worked hard to ensure we are on solid financial footing at a time when higher education institutions around the country are operating in a changing and challenging environment. We will continue, as we have since 1899, to educate students to meet the needs of our communities, now and into the future."
