• Business School Included in Top Business Schools List

10/14/2008

Suffolk University's Sawyer Business School is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review.  The New York-based education services company features the school in the just-published 2009 edition of its “Best 296 Business Schools.”

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP-Publishing, "We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools.  We are pleased to recommend Suffolk University Sawyer Business School to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA." 

“Best 296 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services.  In the Suffolk profile the Princeton Review editors describe the school as: student oriented, career focused with a strong emphasis on global business. They quote from students attending it who say "the faculty are extremely passionate about teaching."   

In a "Survey Says...students love Boston, and the program provides a strong preparation in doing busines globally." The Princeton Review lists topics that [Suffolk students it surveyed for the book were in most agreement about.  The Princeton Review's 80-question survey asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.  

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall.   Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories.  Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 19,000 students attending the 296 business schools profiled in the book.  (Only schools that permitted The Princeton Review to survey their students were eligible for consideration for these lists).   Conducted during the 2007-08, 2006-07, and 2005-06 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online. The lists are posted at http://www.PrincetonReview.com

In the "Best 296 Business Schools" book, the Suffolk Profile is listed on page 410.  

“Best 296 Business Schools” also has advice on applying to business schools and funding the degree.   The book is one of nearly 200 Princeton Review titles published by Random House.  The line includes annual guides to the best law schools and medical schools, plus guides to grad school admission exams and application essays.  The Princeton Review is also known for its college and career guidebooks, its test-prep courses and other education services.   The company is not affiliated with Princeton University and it is not a magazine.
