Those who consult The Princeton Review’s Best 290 Business Schools: 2008 Edition will find 23 newcomers this year, one of them the Chapman Graduate School of Business in the College of Business Administration at Florida International University.
“We are very pleased to add the College of Business Administration to this year’s book and to recommend it to our readers and users of our web site as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA,” said Robert Franek, vice president of The Princeton Review, a New York-based education services company and publisher of Princeton Review guides.
Best 290 Business Schools includes two-page profiles with write-ups on academics, student life, and admissions plus ratings for academics, selectivity, and career placement services. The Princeton Review does not name a best business school overall or rank those in the book from one to 290. Instead, it has eleven ranking lists with each one reporting the top ten business schools (of the 290 in the book) in different categories from “Toughest to Get Into” to “Best Career Prospects.”
The Princeton Review compiles the book’s ratings and ranking lists based on institutional data it collects from the schools and on its surveys of more than 19,000 students attending them. The survey asks students about themselves and their career plans as well as about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life.
Published by Random House/Princeton Review Books, the guide will be available in bookstores October 9, 2007.
