PRINCETON REVIEW REPORTS B-SCHOOL RANKINGS BASED ON 19,000 STUDENT SURVEYS
- Top 10 Schools in 11 Categories in "Best 290 Business Schools" 2008 Editions
NEW YORK, October 8, 2007
The Princeton Review - known for its college rankings based on how students rate their schools - tomorrow releases the 2008 edition of its business school guidebook which also features rankings uniquely based on student surveys.
"Best 290 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review, $22.95, October 9) has 11 ranking lists of top 10 schools in various categories from "Best Professors" to "Best Career Prospects".
The Princeton Review compiled the lists based on its surveys 19,000 students attending the 290 business schools in the book, and on school-reported data.
Some of the ists in "Best 290 Business Schools" and #1 schools on them include:
"Greatest Opportunity for Women" - Mercer University-Atlanta
"Most Family Friendly" - Dartmouth College
"Best Campus Facilities"; - Penn State University.
The Princeton Review has posted the ranking lists and information on how they are compiled at www.PrincetonReview.com where the lists can be searched by school or by category.
Other ranking categories report the top 10 schools with the most diverse faculties, the most conservative or most liberal student bodies, and the greatest opportunities for minority students.
Said Robert Franek, VP / Publisher, Princeton Review, "We compile our ranking lists in multiple categories based on what students report to us about their schools to help applicants decide which of these academically outstanding schools is best for them." The schools in The Princeton Review guidebooks are not ranked academically nor are they ranked hierarchically in any single category.
The ranking lists are based on surveys b-school students conducted during the 2006-07, 2005-06 and 2004-05 academic years. Most were completed online at The Princeton Review's student survey site: http://survey.review.com. The 80-question survey asks students about their school's academics, student body and campus life, themselves, and their career plans.
The school profiles in each book cover academics, admission, financial aid, campus life and career information. They include advice on funding the degrees and applying to the programs.
