NJIT Featured In The Princeton Review's "Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition"

NJIT  has been named by the Princeton Review an outstanding business school in the 2013 edition of The Best 296 Business Schools (Random House / Princeton Review).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We consider NJIT one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA.  We selected the schools we profile in this book – 280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international -- based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools.  We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book."

The Princeton Review's survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.  The student surveys analyzed for this edition were all completed online at http://survey.review.com and conducted during the 2011-12, 2010-11, and 2009-10 academic years.

"The Best 296 Business Schools" has two-page profiles of the schools.  They include write-ups on academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions.  The profiles also have ratings (scores from 60 to 99) for academic experience, admissions selectivity, and career services.  In the profile on NJIT, the Princeton Review editors describe the school:  “The school promotes the notion that business is not a ‘separate entity’ from technology and that the two are more intertwined than ever.”  Some of the comments from students attending NJIT in the profile are:  “strong reputation in the Northeast region” and “the curriculum is geared towards the job market.”

NJIT, New Jersey's science and technology university, enrolls approximately 10,000 students pursuing bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in 120 programs. The university consists of six colleges: Newark College of Engineering, College of Architecture and Design, College of Science and Liberal Arts, School of Management, College of Computing Sciences and Albert Dorman Honors College. U.S. News & World Report's 2012 Annual Guide to America's Best Colleges ranked NJIT in the top tier of national research universities.
