Jack C. Massey College of Business Dean Dr. Pat Raines said, “The Princeton Review is the most widely respected business school guide in the U.S. Belmont University MBA students say exactly what a top program would want: our programs are challenging, they prepare students for the dynamic global economy, and our faculty are accessible, knowledgeable and teach from experience. It is an honor to be listed for the ninth consecutive year.”

“Our students and alumni will be pleased to see that our Princeton Review rankings streak continues,” said Associate Dean Dr. Joe Alexander. “And I feel certain Mr. Massey himself would be very proud to see that the program he first envisioned in 1986 is now routinely mentioned in the same sentence as our nation’s other top graduate business programs.”

The Princeton Review’s survey asked 21,600 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school’s academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were conducted during academic years 2013-14, 2012-13 and 2011-12.“The Best 296 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools, and the Princeton Review editors describe the program as a “great classroom-based education that is flexible enough for a working student” and  “balanced between verbal, interpersonal and mathematical reasoning abilities.”  The profile also highlights Massey’s mandatory study abroad program and many concentrations, including accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, general business, healthcare, marketing and music business.
