For some reason our select dropdown is not required and does not validate the entry. It already contains the class 'required-entry' for the select.

What am I missing here?

<form action="<?php echo $this->getFormAction(); ?>" id="contactForm" method="post">
    <div class="fieldset">
        <ul class="form-list">
        <h2 class="head">Contactform</h2>

Remove required-entry class from <select> and remove selected attribute from <option>

 <select name="dropdown" id="dropdown" class="validate-select">
         <option value=""><?php echo $this->__('Please Select'); ?></option>
         <option name="marketing" value="Marketing"><?php echo $this->__('Marketing'); ?></option>
         <option name="business" value="Business"><?php echo $this->__('Business'); ?></option>
 </select>
