Among the Best in the Country

Cal State Fullerton Listed in Princeton Review’s Best Business Schools

October 20, 2009

Cal State Fullerton’s Mihaylo College of Business and Economics has been included in Princeton Review’s 2010 issue of “Best 301 Business Schools” released this month.

It is the third year in a row that the college has been included in the publication.

The listing is based on surveys of students enrolled at universities that offer M.B.A. programs accredited by the American Association of Colleges and Schools of Business, as well as on statistical information about each institution’s students, physical environment, admissions requirements, teaching ratio and programs.

Universities and colleges are listed under such categories as best professors, classroom experience, career prospects, campus environment and facilities, and opportunities for women and minorities.

“The rating is indicative of the continuing excellence at Mihaylo College. We are getting increasing evidence of employer satisfaction with the preparation of our graduates and high-level success of our alumni,” said Anil Puri, dean of Mihaylo College. “Additionally, the positive experience of our students with faculty involvement and world-class facilities is heartening to us.”

According to the two-page profile in the Oct. 6 publication, students noted the school’s smart classrooms, teaching philosophy, which is underpinned with both practical and theoretical applications,” solid preparation in accounting and presentation skills, and “the amount of attention that is given to each student.”

“We are delighted to be recognized for a third consecutive year as one of the top M.B.A. programs in the country,” said Thomas C. Boyd, associate dean, academic programs and faculty development, in Mihaylo College of Business and Economics. “There is no plan to stop here and we are hard at work on innovative new approaches to M.B.A. education and an enhanced student experience. I think we will continue to see greater recognition from our students as our efforts improve both their education and the market value of their degrees.”

The Mihaylo College of Business and Economics currently has 782 students enrolled in its M.B.A. and other graduate programs, which include master’s degrees in economics, accountancy, taxation and information systems.

The Princeton Review (not affiliated with Princeton University) does not rank the institutions on a single hierarchical list or name one business school best overall. “Best Business Schools” is one of 165 Princeton Review titles published by Random House and is available at bookstores.
