Kent State University’s College of Business Administration Earns Best Business School RankingsPosted Nov. 4, 2013
Kent State University’s College of Business Administration undergraduate and graduate programs recently placed in the top rankings of two major news publications.
The Kent State College of Business Administration’s Master of Business Administration programs were recognized in the Princeton Review’s The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition, which was announced on Oct. 8.
The college has a wide range of high-quality MBA programs, including full-time and part-time offerings, an M.S.A. and an M.A.E. The college also boasts Executive MBA programs in business and healthcare. Plus, the college has four dual-master’s degrees with architecture, nursing, library science and translation.
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools hierarchically from one to 295, or name a best business school overall. Instead, it reports 11 ranking lists, and each list names the top 10 schools in a specific category.
Students attending Kent State’s College of Business Administration who were surveyed by the Princeton Review for the book noted the college’s friendly students and its solid preparation in accounting and general management.
“For the College of Business Administration to be listed in the Princeton Review’s 2014 best business schools ranking is a testament to the outstanding faculty and staff who develop and deliver excellent business education programs, publish impactful research and engage with the business community,” says Deborah Spake, dean of Kent State’s College of Business Administration. “Further, our students benefit from college initiatives that include a wide range of education-abroad opportunities, career preparation workshops, experiential learning activities, and a commitment to internship and job placement. It is rewarding that the Princeton Review and other publications consistently recognize the college for its efforts.”
In September, Kent State also placed in the Best Undergraduate Business Programs ranking 159 out of 342 by U.S. News & World Report from its 2014 edition of Best Colleges. Since the 2013 edition, Kent State moved up in the ranking from 166 to 159. Overall, Kent State earned a coveted spot in the first-tier list in the Best National Universities category and also received a Top Public School, National Universities ranking.
