College of Business Featured in The Princeton Review's
"The Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition"
|October 24, 2012—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 2013 edition of its book, "The Best 296 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, published October 9, 2012, $22.99).|
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We consider The UT Arlington College of Business one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA. We selected the schools we profile in this book — 280 of which are in the U.S.A. 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.
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 http://www.princetonreview.com/business-school-rankings.aspx.
