Press Release

The Master of Business Administration program in Indiana State University’s College of Business has one of the highest rankings in the country when it comes to student satisfaction.

The program is one of 15 named to The Princeton Review’s “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” in the general management category. The honors list is one of six categories to appear in the April 2009 issue of Entrepreneur, the nation’s leading publication for and about entrepreneurs.

MBA students at Indiana State come from a variety of countries, backgrounds, and undergraduate majors including marketing, finance, and engineering. Nearly half are international students. Graduates have gone on to top positions in the business world and succeeded as entrepreneurs and business owners. The ISU MBA program is accredited by AACSB-International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. In addition to the student opinion honor, the program has been named a top business school by The Princeton Review for the past three years

“The College of Business is particularly pleased with this recognition from our students. Very positive connections among our MBA students and faculty, as well as quality teaching and administration, lead to a high level of student satisfaction and success of our graduates,” said Nancy Merritt, dean of the College of Business. “The MBA experience at ISU is enriched by interactions with industry, international and other study trips, and the diversity of student work experiences, nationalities, and prior areas of study. By graduation, students have formed long-term friendships and business contacts.”

Created by The Princeton Review, the education services company, the “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” are reported in six categories: accounting, finance, general management, global management, marketing and operations. Each list names 15 graduate schools of business most highly rated by their students evaluating their MBA program’s preparation in specific categories.

The Princeton Review compiled the lists using data from its national survey of 19,000 MBA students attending 296 business schools profiled in its book, Best 296 Business Schools: 2009 Edition. The 80-question survey asked students to report on classroom and campus experiences at their schools and rate their MBA programs in several areas. The Princeton Review tallied the "Student Opinion Honors" lists based on students' assessments of how well (on a five-point scale) they felt their business school courses had prepared them to succeed in each of the six areas.

In addition to appearing in the magazine, the lists are available at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges and
