UTA College of Business named a "Best" Business School by The Princeton Review

October 10, 2016—The University of Texas at Arlington, College of Business is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles the school in the new 2017 edition of its annual book, "The Best 294 Business Schools" and on its site at www.princetonreview.com/business-school-rankings/best-business-schools.

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend The University of Texas at Arlington, College of Business as one of the best to earn an MBA. We chose the 294 schools in this book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of 25,000 students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book."

"We strive to provide a great experience for our MBA students. Our students are well prepared for the next steps in their career after graduating from UTA. The faculty at the College of Business arm our students the skills needed so they can achieve success in their careers," says Dr. Chandra Subramaniam, Interim Dean of the College of Business.

The school profiles have sections on academics, student life, admissions information and graduates' employment data. The profiles also have five categories of ratings that The Princeton Review tallies based on institutional data it collected during the 2015-16 academic year and/or its student survey for the book. The ratings are scores on a scale of 60 to 99. Rating categories are: Academic Experience, Admissions Selectivity, Career, Professors Interesting, and Professors Accessible. Among the ratings, UTA scored 90 for Academic Experience and 88 for Admissions Selectivity.

Asked why working with students is enjoyable, Becky Neilson, Director of Graduate Business Services says, "It is rewarding on graduation day, to know that you had a small part in the student's attainment of their educational goals and dreams."
