St. Mary’s University’s Bill Greehey School of Business has been named an outstanding business school by The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2012 edition of its book, “The Best 294 Business Schools,” released this week.
The MBA programs included in the publication were chosen based on academic programs and offerings, as well as a review of institutional data collected from the schools. Student survey results were also considered.
The Princeton Review editors describe the St. Mary’s MBA program as one that offers “innovative programs designed to graduate conscientious global business leaders.” They highlight programs such as the $1 million student-managed investment portfolio, unique study aboard opportunities including in Dubai, Mongolia and Russia, and the University’s commitment and focus on service.
“Our mission in the Bill Greehey School of Business is to offer innovative programs that provide a top-notch education for our students while also instilling in them a strong sense of ethics and community,” said Tanuja Singh, D.B.A., Dean of the Bill Greehey School of Business. “To again be recognized in this way speaks directly to the quality and education of our faculty and staff, as well as our students.”
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.
