College of Business named a Top 290 business school for 2008
The Princeton Review – known for its college rankings based on how students rate their schools – has ranked the College of Business at East Carolina University as a top business school in the U.S.
The Princeton Review recently released the 2008 editions of its annual law and business school guidebooks. As part of its rating in the new guide, the College of Business is featured in a two-page profile outlining academics, career and placement, student life, and admissions information.
The profile also includes direct quotes from business students, who applaud “the helpfulness of the instructors,” and describe the College of Business faculty as “demanding and, at the same time, willing to do anything.”
Dr. Frederick Niswander, dean of the College of Business, said, “We are very pleased to be nationally recognized as a top 290 business school. Our longstanding AACSB accreditation, high quality faculty, high-touch instruction, exceptional value and flexibility are a winning combination at ECU.”
The Princeton Review compiled its rankings based on surveys of 18,000 students attending the 170 law schools and 19,000 students attending the 290 business schools in the books, and on school-reported data. The ranking lists and information on their compilation are available online at www.PrincetonReview.com.
There are approximately 2,500 business schools in the U.S.
