NJIT Appears in Princeton Review’s New Book About 300 Best Business Schools

NJIT’s School of Management (SOM) is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2011 edition of its book, “The Best 300 Business Schools" (Random House/Princeton Review) on sale today.

“Our professors and staff are always working hard to improve the NJIT School of Management,” said SOM Dean Robert English. “Over the years we have developed a curriculum seasoned with the technology tools  our students need to succeed in a global economy.  It’s good to know that our efforts are recognized.”

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publishing, "We are pleased to recommend NJIT 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 300 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 that rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book."

"The Best 300 Business Schools: 2011 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 SOM profile, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as having "the edge in technology and related fields." They quote from students attending SOM who say, "The course work is very current and discussions are lively."  One writes, “My academic experience has been great. My professors are great at challenging the students. They encourage continuous dialogue and will engage students in debate quite frequently. Case studies are very relevant, as are course books and other materials." 

In a sidebar in the original profile, surveyed students most agreed with the following topics: "friendly students, good peer network, cutting-edge classes and solid preparation for accounting, general management, and team work." 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 Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 300, or name one business school best overall.
