Princeton Review Names SIUE School of Business Among Nation's Best for 10th Consecutive Year

October 6, 2015

The Princeton Review has named Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s School of Business as one of the best in the country for the 10th-consecutive year. The education services company features the School in the 2016 edition of its book, “The Best 295 Business Schools.”

“The significance of being on this prestigious list for the 10th-consecutive year is that it reflects the experiences of the students who have been in the program,” said School of Business Dean John Navin. “It speaks well to the consistent high quality of our programs, and the dedication of our faculty and staff to provide an exceptional education.”

According to Robert Franek, 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 295 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 22,000 students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey.”

“The Best 295 Business Schools: 2016 Edition” has two-page profiles of the schools, with sections 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 survey responders indicated that the SIUE School of Business has “classmates with diverse work experience, happy, friendly students who love Edwardsville, cutting edge classes” and an MBA program that features solid preparation in “general management, teamwork, communication/interpersonal skills, presentation skills and quantitative skills.”
