IU South Bend School of Business and Economics Makes Princeton Review

Indiana University South Bend School of Business and Economics is one of the 300 outstanding institutions featured in the 2011 edition of The Princeton Review’s “Best Business Schools” guidebook.
“The Best 300 Business Schools: 2011 Edition” gathers opinions from 19,000 students at the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredited MBA programs throughout the world. Each student answered 80 questions about themselves, career plans and the school. The results are included in each school’s two-page profile.

IU South Bend’s MBA program was graded on academics, career and placement; student life and environment, and admissions. The academics were called “exhaustive.” Other students cited “low cost, high accreditation.”
Surveyed students stated that they appreciated the “high level of professor-student interaction” and the “integrating (of) the actual work environment with the classroom experience.”
According to surveys, the professors were “committed” and “accessible.”
Students said that “many clubs on campus meet a wide variety of academic and social wants and needs.” Other students noted that the campus was friendly, safe and there is “an excellent library and reasonably priced food service.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book academically or hierarchically. According to the publishers, the surveys are tallied and the profiles are written “to give applicants a broader range of information to decide” which school is best for them.
On the average about 65 students at each business school were surveyed.
