Barney School of Business is among the most highly rated by students, according to The Princeton Review's second annual "Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools" lists.
The lists, which appear in the April 2010 issue of Entrepreneur magazine, each name 15 graduate schools of business that were most highly rated by their students in six categories: Accounting, Finance, General Management, Global Management, Marketing, and Operations. The business schools appear in alphabetical order on the lists, and are not ranked 1 to 15. The Barney School is listed in the General Management category. Typically, a general management degree allows students to earn a highly versatile degree that provides the utmost flexibility throughout their careers.
"We commend the schools on these lists for the outstanding job they are doing in preparing their students to apply their MBA training beyond the classroom to successful job searches and productive careers," says Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher of The Princeton Review. "We know this will be particularly meaningful to business school applicants in these challenging economic times."
The Princeton Review compiled the lists using data from its national survey of 19,000 MBA students attending 301 business schools. The survey asked students to report on classroom and campus experiences at their schools and rate their MBA programs in several areas. The Princeton Review tallied the "Student Opinion Honors" lists based on students' assessments of how well (on a five-point scale) they felt their business school courses had prepared them to succeed in each of the six areas.
