Rohrer College of Business featured in Princeton Review's "Best 296 Business Schools"October 10, 2008
The Princeton Review once again has recognized the Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University, including the Glassboro college in the recently published 2009 edition of its "Best 296 Business Schools" (Random House/Princeton Review, $22.95, now on sale).
The Princeton Review — known for its college rankings based on how students rate their schools — this week released the 2009 editions of its annual law and business school guidebooks, which also feature rankings uniquely based on student surveys. "Best 174 Law Schools" and "Best 296 Business Schools" each have 11 ranking lists of top 10 schools in various categories from "Best Professors" to "Best Career Prospects."
The Princeton Review compiled the lists based on its surveys of 18,000 students attending the 174 law schools and 19,000 students attending the 296 business schools in the books and on school-reported data.
The Princeton Review has posted the ranking lists and information on how they are compiled at www.PrincetonReview.com, where the lists can be searched by school or by category.
Said Robert Franek, vice president/publisher, Princeton Review, "We compile our ranking lists in multiple categories based on what students report to us about their schools to help applicants decide which of these schools we believe to be academically outstanding will be best for them."
The Princeton Review does not rank schools academically or hierarchically in any of its college or graduate school guidebooks.
About the student surveys and the books
The ranking lists are based on surveys of law and b-school students during the 2007-08, 2006-07, and 2005-06 academic years. On average, 100 students at each law school and 65 students at each business school were surveyed for the rankings lists appearing in the new editions of the books. The 80-question survey asked students about their school's academics, student body and campus life, themselves, and their career plans. Most of the surveys were completed online at The Princeton Review's student survey site: http://survey.review.com. A small percent were paper surveys completed on the campuses.
School profiles in "Best 174 Law Schools" and "Best 296 Business Schools" cover admission, academics, financial aid, campus life and career information. Introductory chapters offer information and advice on funding the degrees, taking the LSAT and GMAT, applying to the schools and excelling at them.
