Princeton Review has named Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s School of Business as one of the best in the country for on-campus MBA for the 15th consecutive year. The education services company features the school in the 2021 edition of its book The Best 244 Business Schools.

“Combined with our AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accreditation, the recognition as a Best Business School from Princeton Review gives our students the assurance that our faculty are providing a high-quality business education,” SIUE School of Business Associate Dean Janice Joplin said. “We value the Princeton Review ranking because it is based on feedback from our students and alumni about their experiences in the SIUE School of Business.”

According to Rob Franek, Princeton Review editor-in-chief, “We recommend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as an excellent choice for an aspiring MBA. What makes our Best Business Schools list unique is that we factor in data from our surveys of students attending the schools about their campus and classroom experiences. For our 2021 list we tallied surveys of more than 17,800 students at 244 business schools.”

Princeton Review’s 80-question survey asked students about their school’s academics, student body and campus life, as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys were conducted during the 2019-20, 2018-19 and 2017-18 academic years.

Princeton Review surveyed business school administrators during the 2019-20 academic year. The administrator survey, which numbered more than 200 questions, covered topics from academic offerings and admission requirements to data about currently enrolled students, as well as graduates’ employment.

The Best 244 Business Schools: 2021 Edition has profiles of the schools, with sections on their academics, student life, admissions information and graduates’ employment data.

The profiles also have five ratings — academic experience, admissions selectivity, career, professors interesting and professors accessible — that Princeton Review tallies based on data from its administrator and/or student survey.
