Wayne State School of Business Named a “Best Business School”October 17, 2008
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP-Publishing, "We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools. We are pleased to recommend Wayne State to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA."
"Best 296 Business Schools" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on Wayne State, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as providing "a progressive MBA program to a serious population of working professionals." They quote from students attending it, including one who says the MBA coursework "is pertinent to my profession, and I take what I learn and use it every day in the workplace."
In a "Survey Says. . ." sidebar in the profile, The Princeton Review lists topics that Wayne State students it surveyed for the book were in most agreement about. The list includes: "cutting edge classes," and "solid preparation in accounting and general management." The Princeton Review's 80-question survey asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools' academics, student body and campus life.The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall. The list is posted at www.PrincetonReview.com.
