The University of Scranton’s Kania School of Management has been included among the elite group of graduate business schools in the world to be listed in the 9th edition of Princeton Review’s Best 296 Business Schools.


In the two-page profile about Scranton contained in the guide book, Princeton Review notes that “Jesuit values add a unique flavor to the graduate business programs at The University of Scranton, which emphasizes a contemporary approach to business while simultaneously exploring topics in ethics and social responsibility.” The Best 296 Business Schools also notes that Scranton’s MBA program “puts particular weight on the integration of technology and business, and maintains a strong sense of globalization throughout the curriculum.”


The Best 296 Business Schools also includes information about academics, student life and environment, admissions and career placement programs for each school profiled.


“We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s vice president for publishing.


The Princeton Review surveyed 19,000 MBA students at the colleges listed in the book.


Scranton’s MBA program is accredited by the AACSB-International, the most recognized and respected business school accrediting body.


This marks the fourth consecutive year that The University of Scranton was listed in Princeton Review’s best business schools guide book. Scranton has also been listed in the Princeton Review’s undergraduate guide book The Best 368 Colleges, for seven consecutive years. In addition, for the past 15 years, Scranton has been ranked among the top ten master’s universities in the North by U.S.News & World Report and this year was named among the 70 “Up and Coming” schools in the nation to watch.
