Business school lands spot on Princeton Review's best of list
The Princeton Review has included the University of Kansas School of Business master’s of business administration program in its publication “The Best 301 Business Schools.” The 2010 rankings were tallied by surveying 19,000 students from throughout the United States.
Students had great things to say about KU’s MBA program in terms of academics, future careers and campus life in a summary of comments compiled by the Princeton Review.
“The best business school in the Midwest,” said one student of KU.
Students frequently commented on the program’s excellent faculty and administration. The school’s professors are “active in the business world within their fields” and they exhibit “a great blend of teaching skills and real-world experience.”
MBA students also raved about the KU’s international involvement opportunities. The business school’s diverse programs have taken students to India, China, Germany, France, Brazil and Mexico. Students say KU provides “an exceptional international business program for being in the middle of the United States.”
KU’s MBA program has produced prominent professionals in the business world. Alumni include chief executive officers, chairs and vice presidents at companies such as Google, Goldman Sachs and Deloitte and Touche.
“I already have a job waiting for me when I complete the master’s program,” said one student.
Students also complimented the Business Career Services Center for its preparation programs and career fairs. Tradebot, MarketSphere, United Missouri Bank, EMBARQ and Sprint Nextel are just a few of the companies that frequently come to KU to hire MBA graduates.
“There are really more things that I’d like to be able to participate in than I have time to do,” said one student. The MBA program is “filled with a variety of activities, including extracurriculars (Net Impact, MBA Ambassadors), social events put on by MBA student organizations, working for the MBA admissions office, and of course, course work.”
