‘The Princeton Review’ ranks our School of Business and its MBA among the best

The Quinnipiac University School of Business is an outstanding business school, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review. The company features Quinnipiac in the new 2013 edition of its annual guidebook, “The Best 296 Business Schools.”

“We consider the Quinnipiac University School of Business one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior vice president-publisher. “We selected the schools we profile in this book – 280 of which are in the U.S. and 16 are international — based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book.”

The Princeton Review’s survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school’s academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were all completed online at http://survey.review.com and conducted during the 2011-12, 2010-11 and 2009-10 academic years.

“We are very pleased that the School of Business and the MBA program have been recognized as a top program in the Princeton Review Guide to the Best Business Schools,” said Matthew O’Connor, dean of the School of Business. “This designation further demonstrates our quality, commitment to students and rising visibility within the landscape of graduate business education.”

“The Best 296 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools.  They include sections on academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions.  The profiles also have ratings (scores from 60 to 99) for academic experience, admissions selectivity, and career services.

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten lists are based entirely or partly on The Princeton Review’s surveys of students attending the schools in the book. A few lists, such as “Best Career Prospects,” use both student survey and institutional data. One list, “Toughest to Get Into,” is based solely on institutional data. The lists in the book are posted at www.princetonreview.com/business-school-rankings.aspx.
