The Princeton Review selects EMU College of Business as one of the 'best'
YPSILANTI — Eastern Michigan University’s College of Business is one of the “Best 282 Business Schools” in the nation according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features EMU in the just-published 2007 edition of its “Best 282 Business Schools” (Random House / Princeton Review, Oct. 3, 2006, $22.95).
“We are all very proud that this is the third consecutive year that we have received this recognition,” said David Mielke, dean of the EMU College of Business. “The prestigious recognition by The Princeton Review reinforces our branding as an ‘innovative, applied and global’ college of business. Because inclusion on this list is based heavily on student input, we have credibility as to the high quality of our faculty and programs.”
The Princeton Review compiled the ranking list based on its survey of 18,000 students attending the 282 business schools profiled in the book, and on institutional data from the schools. The survey asked students 80 questions about themselves, their career plans, and their school's academics, student body and campus life.
Students praised a wide range of EMU offerings, touting the “excellent entrepreneur services” and “excellent computer labs.”
The tallies of student survey-based ranking lists were based on surveys of students during the 2005-06, 2004-05 and 2003-04 academic years, primarily online at The Princeton Review's student survey site: http://survey.review.com. No ranking list is based on The Princeton Review's opinion of the schools, nor do the books have one hierarchical ranking list of all schools profiled.
The book features a two-page school profile covering academics, admission, financial aid, campus life and career/employment information.
The Princeton Review is known for its test-prep courses, education programs, college and graduate school admission services, and 200 books published by Random House. Among them are "Best 168 Medical Schools" and guides for graduate school admission exams and application essays. Headquartered in New York, The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University.
Eastern Michigan University is a public, comprehensive university that offers programs in the arts, sciences and professions. EMU prepares students with the intellectual skills and practical experiences to succeed in their career and lives, and to be better citizens.
