Florida International University’s (FIU) Chapman Graduate School has been rated among the top 15 business schools in two categories—global management and operations—surveyed in The Princeton Review’s second annual “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools.” The lists, which reflect the evaluations of 19,000 MBA students, appear in the April 2010 issue of Entrepreneur magazine. The graduate school was included on the list last year in the operations category and has also been included in The Princeton Review’s The Best 301 Business Schools: 2011 Edition as well as in their 2010, 2009 and 2008 editions.
Other business schools rated with FIU’s Chapman School in the global management category included Harvard Business School, University of South Carolina (Moore School), University of Texas at Austin (McCombs School), Thunderbird School of Global Management, INSEAD The European Institute of Business Administration and Georgetown University (McDonough School).
“We are particularly gratified by this rating because it indicates that our MBA students are recognizing the strategic importance that we have assigned to achieving excellence in the area of global management and international business,” said Luis Casas, director of marketing, communications and recruiting in the College of Business Administration. “The rating shows that we are delivering on our vision of becoming one of the world’s leading international business schools.”
FIU Business’s operations offerings garner another ratings spot.
In the operations category, the Chapman School was accompanied by University of Virginia (Darden School), University of California at Berkeley (Haas School), Georgia Institute of Technology and Queen’s School of Business, among others.
“Our presence on these lists in Entrepreneur magazine further reflects the quality of the classroom experience and our ability to prepare students for real-world business challenges,” Casas added
The Princeton Review compiled the lists, presented in alphabetical order, using data from an 80-question survey on which students rated their MBA programs on a five-point scale reflecting how well they felt their courses had prepared them to succeed in each of six areas, which also included accounting, finance, general management and marketing.
