The SIUE School of Business is nationally recognized for the quality of its programs.
The Princeton Review lists SIUE as one of the top 294 business schools in the U.S. for the 11th consecutive year. The education services company features the School in the new 2017 edition of its book, “The Best 294 Business Schools.”
According to Robert Franek, The Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher, “We recommend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA. We chose the 296 schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book.”
SIUE students in the publication are quoted as saying:
“Professors relate the course work to everyday life, know how to communicate their information to their students effectively and they seem to truly care about students learning and being able to apply information in the real world.”
“Their ability to answer questions from their experience in the field has earned my respect.”
“Most of my professors still consult in their respective industries. They are very current on business trends and developments.”
“The Best 296 Business Schools: 2015 Edition” has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life, admissions information and graduates’ employment data. In the SIUE profile, The Princeton Review editors describe the School as offering an “exceptional and … convenient MBA program with courses in evening and weekend formats on the Edwardsville campus. This up-and-coming school offers a well-rounded program that is taught by professors with real world experience.”
The School of Business economics and finance graduate program is ranked 12th in The Financial Engineer’s 2015 Financial Economics Rankings.
Overall scores are based on the program’s acceptance rate, incoming students’ undergraduate GPA and GMAT scores, employment after graduation and starting salary. The Financial Engineer conducts a wide range of business school rankings including MBA and master of financial engineering. This was the initial ranking of financial economics programs.
