Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School is an outstanding business school, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review. The company features the school in the new 2013 edition of its annual guidebook, The Best 296 Business Schools.

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, “We consider Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School 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.

Dr. Donald Moliver, dean of the Leon Hess Business School, stated: “We are proud to be named one of the best business schools in the nation. Our MBA is designed to prepare students to be ready to compete and succeed in the global marketplace, from New Jersey to New York, London, Tokyo, and Dubai.”

The Best 296 Business Schools has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions. In the profile on the Leon Hess Business School, the Princeton Review editors state that the school: “offers its students more personalized attention than they would get at a larger program.” In addition, the profile highlights the addition of a “full-time accelerated MBA program that can be completed in one year.”  They quote students attending the Leon Hess Business School who say “students are a small community, so everybody knows everybody,” and their classmates are “friendly, sociable, and open-minded.” They also praise the school’s “affordability,” saying tuition clocks in lower than at regional public schools.

The Leon Hess Business School, among the top 5% of business schools internationally accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, offers MBA program tracks in accounting, finance, real estate, and a concentration in healthcare management. Also, post-master’s certificates in accounting and healthcare management are designed especially for individuals who already possess an MBA and are interested in furthering their knowledge. Qualified undergraduate students have the option of enrolling in a five-year program in which they can seamlessly earn both their bachelor’s degree and MBA.
