College of Business Featured in The Princeton Review's
"The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition"
|October 12, 2011—The UT Arlington College of Business is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2012 edition of its book, "The Best 294 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, on sale date October 11, 2012, $22.99).|
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, “We recommend the UT Arlington College of Business to readers of our book and users of our site, http://www.PrincetonReview.com, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA. We chose the 294 business schools in this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book."
"The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life, and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity, and career placement services. They quote from students attending the College of Business who say it "is at the cutting edge of the business world.” One student added, “Professors are tough but they know well what they teach.”
The publication’s editors noted the college’s growing network of corporate contacts: “University of Texas at Arlington is ‘recognized by companies’ around the country and has a good placement track record.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 294, 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 on The Princeton Review's surveys of 19,000 students attending the 294 business schools profiled in the book. (Only schools that permitted The Princeton Review to survey their students were eligible for consideration for these lists.) Conducted during the 2010-11, 2009-10, and 2008-09 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online. One list, "Toughest to Get Into," is based solely on institutional data. (All schools in the book were eligible for consideration for this list.) The lists are posted at http://www.PrincetonReview.com.
