Students Rate Their B-School’s Competence

The April issue of Entrepreneur magazine reports on the MBA programs most highly rated by their students in six areas key to a successful career in business, the publication announced Tuesday. The lists, titled “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools,” were created and compiled for the second year in a row by educational services company The Princeton Review.

The Princeton Review asked students for their opinion on how well their business school is preparing them in the core business competencies:  Accounting, Finance, General Management, Global Management, Marketing, and Operations.

Robert Franek, SVP/Publisher, The Princeton Review, says “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.  We know this will be particularly meaningful to b-school applicants in these challenging economic times.”
