Rohrer College of Business featured in the Princeton Review's "Best 294 Business Schools"November 04, 2011
The education services company The Princeton Review features the William G. Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University in the 2012 edition of its book “The Best 294 Business Schools.”
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher, “We recommend the Rohrer College of Business to readers of our book and users of our site, www.PrincetonReview.com, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA. We chose the 294 business schools in this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book.”
Dr. Niranjan Pati, dean of the Rohrer College of Business said, “I am not at all surprised with the quality of our program that made us appear in the Best Business Schools 2012 edition. My colleagues and I believe we offer an excellent MBA program, and it is reflected in our students’ comments.”
“The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition” has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on the Rohrer College of Business, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as: “a good location, good tuition and good environment.” They quote from students attending the Rohrer College of Business who say “every professor I have had you could e-mail them a question about the course, and get a solid answer within a day usually…I have had nothing but a pleasant experience at Rowan, even when I had a family emergency. The faculty and staff were very understanding and accommodating and allowed me to work around the days I needed to provide care for a relative.”
In a “Survey Says . . .” sidebar in the profile, The Princeton Review lists topics that the Rohrer College of Business students it surveyed were in most agreement about. The list includes: “cutting-edge classes and solid preparation in communication/interpersonal skills and presentation skills.” The Princeton Review's 80-question survey for the book asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.
“The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition” also has advice on applying to business schools and funding the degree. It is one of the more than150 Princeton Review books published by Random House. The line includes “The Best 167 Law Schools: 2012 Edition,” “The Best 168 Medical Schools: 2012 Edition” plus guides to graduate school admission exams and application essays. The Princeton Review is also known for its guides to colleges and to standardized tests, its classroom and online test-prep courses, tutoring and other education services.
