YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University's College of Business has been included among "The Best 300 Business Schools" for 2011, according to the Princeton Review.

"This recognition, for the seventh straight year, validates that our faculty are truly providing a top-quality education for our students," said David Mielke, dean of EMU's College of Business.  "It is not just stating that we are innovative, applied and global, but actually delivering an education that integrates these important business concepts in the curriculum for our graduates.  It also is important to note that our Ethos program, with an emphasis on business ethics, is the foundation for all we do."

The Princeton Review compiled the lists based on its surveys of 19,000 students attending the 300 business schools in the book, as well as on school-reported data. The entire list is at www.PrincetonReview.com .

According to The Princeton Review website, inclusion in the publication is based on criteria for academic excellence and surveys conducted of students.
The publication attempted to collect student opinions and statistical data from all American graduate business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), as well as from accredited international business schools.
