Mankato, Minn. –Minnesota State University, Mankato has one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review (www.princetonreview.com). The company features Minnesota State Mankato in the new 2015 edition of its book, “The Best 296 Business Schools” (Random House / Princeton Review, Oct. 7, 2014, $22.99).
Minnesota State Mankato’s College of Business has been included in The Princeton Review rankings since 2006 (nine years in a row).
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher, “Each school in our books offers outstanding academics: no single law or business school is ‘best’ overall. We publish rankings in several categories along with our detailed profiles of the schools to give applicants the broader information they need to determine which school will be best for them.”
The Princeton Review’s survey asks business school students about their school’s academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.
“The Best 296 Business Schools: 2015 Edition” has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions. They quote from Minnesota State Mankato students who were surveyed by The Princeton Review for the book. Among the student comments: Courses are “very content and knowledge driven, and are updated real time based on the trends.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall.
Headquartered in Framingham, Mass., The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
