EMU's College of Business one of nation's best according to The Princeton Review
YPSILANTI —Eastern Michigan University’s College of Business (COB) has again been named among the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review.
This is the fifth consecutive year EMU was honored.
The COB is one of 296, out of more than 1,000 business schools nationally, to be featured in the just-released 2009 student-opinion-driven guidebook, “Best 296 Business Schools” (Random House/Princeton Review, 2009 edition, Oct. 7, 2008, $22.95).
“We are very proud and honored to be highly ranked again,” COB Dean David Mielke said. “This distinction underscores our college’s commitment to the principles of applied, innovative and global and dedication to business education first.”
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. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of 19,000 students attending the 296 business schools profiled in the book. Conducted during the 2007-08, 2006-07 and 2005-06 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online. One list, “Toughest to Get Into,” is based solely on institutional data. The lists are posted at PrincetonReview.com.
Founded in 1964, the COB is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) and offers undergraduate and master’s degrees. The college hosts the nation’s only Ethos Week each year in March and is also the first to create an “Ethos Statement” and “Ethos Honor Society.”
