Princeton Review Honors Massey in Best Business Schools Book

BestBSchoolSeal.jpgThe Princeton Review—known for its college rankings based on how students rate their schools—recently released its 2008 edition of the annual business school guidebook, with Belmont University’s Jack C. Massey Graduate School of Business being listed as one of the “Best 290 Business Schools” among AACSB-accredited MBA programs world-wide.
Dr. Pat Raines, Dean and Professor of Economics in the Massey Graduate School of Business, said, “It is an honor for the Massey School to be selected for the third consecutive year to the Best Business Schools edition of the Princeton Review. The Princeton Review is a leading reference for students considering graduate business programs. Comments in the student surveys indicate that we are true to our mission of delivering an evening graduate business program that is rigorous and practical and is meeting the needs of working students. I am particularly proud of the students comments about the Massey faculty whom students say are accessible, challenging and bring their real world experience to the classroom.”
Belmont students also noted that all of the business professors “were top executives at one point in their careers” and are “good, knowledgeable people who have a desire to teach.”
The Princeton Review compiled the lists based on its surveys of 19,000 students attending the 290 business schools and on school-reported data. Said Robert Franek, VP / Publisher, Princeton Review, “We compile our ranking lists in multiple categories based on what students report to us about their schools to help applicants decide which of these academically outstanding schools is best for them.”
