Monmouth University Named to The Princeton Review’s “Best Business Schools for 2023”

Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School is one of the country’s best business schools according to The Princeton Review. The education services company recently named Monmouth’s on-campus MBA program to its list of Best Business Schools for 2023. This is Monmouth’s 18th consecutive year on the annual academic roster.

“We are so proud that the continued success of the Leon Hess Business School has once again been recognized by the Princeton Review,” Raj Devasagayam, Ph.D., dean of the Leon Hess Business School said. “Our commitment to personalized education that promotes business as a force for good produces business leaders with knowledge, skills, and values that are highly sought by potential employers.”

The Princeton Review editors weigh more than 60 data points in making their selections for their annual Best Business Schools lists. The 2023 list analyzed data from surveys the company conducted in 2021-22 of administrators at 243 schools offering on-campus MBA programs, as well as surveys over the past three academic years of 20,300 students enrolled in the programs. 

The administrator survey requests data on topics from academic offerings, faculty, and career services to admission and graduation rates. The student survey asks students to rate their school’s academics, professors, administrators, and career services, and to report on its campus culture as well as their career plans.

In the surveys, students highlighted Monmouth’s small campus setting which allows them to “get one-on-one time with professors and administrators,” noting that “faculty are always [available] whether… via email, phone call, or meeting up at a time that is convenient.”

Other students shared that faculty are “very knowledgeable in their fields,” and their varied industry experience “gives [professors] the chance to share real-life business scenarios with students.”

Princeton Review mentions that in addition to faculty, students have access “to a variety of ‘real world’ experts” through the “H.R. Young Lecture Series, the Accounting Club Speakers, the Finance Club Speaker, [and] the S.B. Siegel Lecture Series.”

The Leon Hess Business School is accredited by AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International — the accreditation has been earned by less than 5% of the world’s business programs.
