Princeton Review puts MBA program among the nation’s best
Citadel MBA students have again given the School of Business Administration high praise, earning it a ranking among The Princeton Review’s best 294 business schools in the country.
“This recognition highlights our continuing efforts to educate and develop leaders of principle and to encourage our students to live by The Citadel’s core values or honor, duty and respect,” said Ron Green, dean of the business school.
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools by number. The ratings are based on survey results collected from students at AACSB-accredited MBA programs. There are 633 business schools and programs with AACSB accreditation.
“The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition" profiles schools’ academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. The Citadel School of Business was recognized for “building leaders and sound decision makers,” educating quality students, and having “by far the best MBA reputation in South Carolina.”
The Princeton Review gave special note to the school’s Mentor Program, which matches MBA students with leaders in business based on common interests and career path. Opportunities to study abroad, networking opportunities and dual-degree programs with medical, pharmacy and health care administration were also recognized.
The Citadel School of Business Administration aims to educate its MBA students to become leaders of exceptional integrity dedicated to developing others and creating high-performance organizations that prosper in challenging environments, Green said.
“What is particularly gratifying is that this recognition is based upon students’ attitudes toward our program,” he said. “We strive to always exceed their expectations while maintaining the high quality standards indicated by our accreditation through AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.”
