Minnesota State University, Mankato Media Relations Office News Release, 10-22-2015

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 ( The company features Minnesota State Mankato in the new 2016 edition of its book, “The Best 295 Business Schools” (Penguin Random House / Princeton Review, Oct. 6, 2016, $22.99).

Minnesota State Mankato’s College of Business has been included in The Princeton Review rankings since 2006 (10 years in a row).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher: “The schools we selected for these guides all offer academically outstanding degrees: we recommend them highly. Their program offerings vary considerably, and we salute and highlight those distinctions in our profiles. Our purpose is not to rank schools hierarchically or crown any school as ‘best’ overall. Our goal is to provide school profiles combined with multiple rating scores and ranking lists to help applicants choose the best (business school) for them.”

“The Best 295 Business Schools: 2016 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: “the way the program is designed makes it easy…to learn and understand the concepts in a better way.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 295, or name one business school best overall.

The Princeton Review tallied its lists based on its surveys of 22,000 students attending the 295 business schools in the book. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their experiences at them. Some ranking list tallies also factored in school-reported data.

Headquartered in Framingham, Mass., The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
