Princeton Review Ranks the Villanova School of Business #9 for Quality of Campus Environment

VILLANOVA, Pa., October 6, 2009 – The Villanova School of Business has been honored as one of the best business schools in the nation by The Princeton Review in its 2010 book, The Best 301 Business Schools, which hits news stands today. In the book, The Princeton Review ranks the best graduate business schools among those that have an MBA program and are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). There are nearly 2,000 such schools in the United States today. The Villanova School of Business’ MBA Program was noted for the quality of professors, convenience for working professionals, strength of the alumni network, and the overall reputation of the School.

The Princeton Review compiles the information for The Best 301 Business Schools from its surveys of 19,000 students attending the 301 schools and from school-reported data. “This ranking is important because it conveys the opinions of our students,” said Robert Bonner, Associate Dean for Graduate and Executive Programs. “Our students value their strong peer and alumni networks, and they recognize Villanova professors’ strength in connecting theory with practice.”

In addition, VSB ranked # 9 for Quality of Campus Environment, which is based on students’ assessment of the safety, attractiveness, and location of the school. Students noted VSB’s in-house dining hall and coffee shop as points of particular convenience.

In addition to being ranked by The Princeton Review, VSB’s MBA programs have been ranked among the best in the nation by BusinessWeek and the Financial Times.
