Southeaast's MBA Program Recognized by Princeton Review

Posted Saturday, October 13, 2012, at 5:00 PM

Southeast Missouri State University's Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has been recognized in The Princeton Review in the new 2013 edition of its annual guidebook, "The Best 296 Business Schools."

"We consider Southeast Missouri State University one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA. We selected the schools we profile in this book -- 280 of which are in the U.S.A. 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 in a news release.

The Princeton Review also solicits opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them in an 80-question survey for the book.

The Princeton Review's most recent survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were all completed online and conducted during the 2011-2012, 2010-2011, and 2009-2010 academic years.

The Harrison MBA program has been recognized by the Princeton Review for more than six years as one of the top MBA programs in the nation, said Dr. Gerald McDougall, associate provost of Extended and Online Learning and dean of the Donald L. Harrison College of Business.

"The Best 296 Business Schools" has two-page profiles of the schools. They include write-ups on academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions.

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. However, in the "Survey Says..." sidebar on the book's Southeast profile, the editors list topics on the survey about which Southeast students surveyed had the highest consensus. Among them are: general management, communication/interpersonal skills, presentation and computer skills.
