Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School is one of the nation’s best business schools, according to the education services company The Princeton Review. The company features the school in the new 2015 edition of its book “The Best 296 Business Schools.”
“We are honored to be recognized by Princeton Review for the tenth consecutive year,” said Dr. Donald Moliver, dean of the Leon Hess Business School. “Thanks to the commitment of our dedicated faculty and staff, our MBA program prepares students to thrive and compete in today’s global economy.”
The two-page profile in the guidebook notes that “professors are ‘very knowledgeable in their fields’ and their real-life work experience ‘gives them the chance to share real-life business scenarios with students’.” In addition, “the small campus setting, ‘allows each student to get one-on-one time with professors and administrators’.”
The Princeton Review tallied its lists based on its surveys of 21,600 students attending the 296 business schools. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their experiences at the school. Some ranking lists tallies also factored in school-reported data.
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools hierarchically. “Each school in our book offers outstanding academics: no single b-school is ‘best’ overall,” said Robert Franek, SVP / Publisher, The Princeton Review. “We publish rankings in several categories along with our detailed profiles of the schools to give applicants the broader information they need to determine which school will be best for them.”
The ranking tallies factor in data from Princeton Review’s surveys of business school students completed online during academic years 2013-14, 2012-13, and 2011-12. The survey asked students about their school’s academics, student body and campus life, and their career plans. On average, 73 students at each b-school were surveyed for the lists in the books’ 2015 editions. All institutional data reported in the books was collected in 2013-14.
The books’ school profiles report admission, academics, financial aid, campus life, and career/employment information. The profiles also include school ratings (scores from 60 to 99) in five categories based primarily on institutional data. Among them are scores reflecting the school’s “Admissions Selectivity” and “Career” statistics (which factors in data on graduates’ starting salaries and employment).
