EMU College of Business named one of best business schools by The Princeton Review

YPSILANTI - For the second consecutive year, Eastern Michigan University’s College of Business has been selected as one of the “Best 237 Business Schools” by The Princeton Review.

            “This recognition reinforces our position as an innovative, applied and global college of business.  Our faculty’s strong focus on teaching and the professional development of our students is reflected by the student ratings.  We are very pleased to be included in this prestigious group,” said David Mielke, dean of the EMU College of Business.

            “Every school we profile in this book offers a terrific MBA education, yet each one is distinctive in its academic programs, school offerings and campus culture,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review vice president of publishing, “We don't name — and don't think it's useful to name — one best business school overall. The key question for applicants is 'What is the best b-school for me?' To help them decide this, we survey students attending the schools and report what they say about their experiences at them. Our profiles and ranking lists of top schools in various categories are based on straight-from-the-campus data we collected from school administrators and students at the schools."

            The two-page profiles in “Best 237 Business Schools” have sections on the school’s academics, student life, admissions and career / placement programs. The profiles also have ratings on the school's academics, admissions selectivity and career programs.

            With its “ability to pull professionals from the different industries located in the southeastern Michigan area and an excellent location for jobs,” the College of Business at Eastern Michigan University offers “an awesome MBA,” wrote one student.

            Another student commented that EMU’s COB has “excellent entrepreneur services” and “very demanding but great management professors.”

            The book's list is based on institutional data from the schools and on surveys of 16,000 students attending the 237 schools profiled in the book.  The survey asked students 50 questions about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.  Conducted during the 2004-05 and 2003-04 academic years, the surveys were conducted primarily online. The complete listing can be found at (www.PrincetonReview.com).
