Augusta State University to be in the Princeton Review Book, Best 290 Business Schools: 2008 Edition
Augusta, Ga. – The James M. Hull College of Business at Augusta State University has been named one of the top business schools in the nation by the national publication, The Princeton Review. This is the first time that the college has been selected for inclusion in this prestigious publication that annually selects the Best 290 Business Schools.
"We are very pleased that the Princeton Review has recognized our outstanding program. We are proud that we have achieved distinction for our academics, and we are also pleased that the Princeton Review has noted our faculty's concern for the total well-being of our students," says Marc Miller, dean of the Hull College.
According to Robert Franke, vice president and publisher of the Princeton Review, Augusta State University has an outstanding business school. "We select schools for this book based on several criteria: our regard for their academic programs and other offerings, institutional data we collect about the schools, and opinions of students attending the school," says. "We are very pleased to add Augusta State University to our book this year and to recommend it to our readers and users of our website one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA."
Best 290 Business Schools has two-page profiles of the top schools with information on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. The Princeton Review does not name a best business school overall or rank the schools in the book from 1 to 290. The book has, instead, 11 ranking lists with each one reporting just the top 10 business schools (of the 290 in the book) in different categories from Toughest to Get Into to Best Career Prospects. The Princeton Review compiles the book's ratings and ranking lists based on institutional data it collects from the schools and on its surveys of more than 19,000 students attending the schools profiled in the book. The survey asks students about themselves and their career plans, as well as their schools' academics, student body and campus life.
