Princeton Review lists Stetson University Business School among nation’s best

Stetson University’s School of Business Administration has been named one of the nation’s “Best 296 Business Schools” in a new guidebook released Oct. 9 by The Princeton Review.

The education services company compiles its guidebook of top business schools annually based on input from more than 19,000 students in Master of Business Administration programs accredited by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, as well as statistical data received from the institutions.

One of 296
“We selected the schools we profile in this book—280 of which are in the USA and 16 are international—based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior Vice President-Publisher.

The new 2013 edition of the book, “The Best 296 Business Schools,” includes a profile of Stetson’s School of Business Administration that includes information on academics, student life and environment, the admission process, statistical data and career placement services. Students highlighted Stetson’s small class size, personalized education, accessible and supportive faculty, modern facilities, flexible schedules for working professionals, and global focus, including opportunities to study business abroad during short or semester-long trips.

It highlights Stetson’s traditional MBA, Executive MBA, the Accelerated MBA, as well as the Accelerated MBA/Juris Doctor (law) degrees. The profile notes the proximity of the university’s Central Florida campuses in DeLand and Gulfport/St. Petersburg and satellite center in Celebration to metropolitan areas including Orlando, Daytona Beach and Tampa Bay.

“Innovative and intimate” are the themes that underlie our programs,” said Stetson Dean of Business Administration Thomas V. Schwarz. “From our world-class family enterprise curriculum that develops next generation leaders in family firms, to our Roland George national champions in student managed investment funds, Stetson students are challenged to dare to be significant.

We live these principles by creating programs founded upon three R’s: Rigor, Relationship and Responsibility. Our values-based programs develop students who are ready to make an impact upon their careers, their communities and the world.”
