The Princeton Review has named The University of Scranton’s Kania School of Management to its international list of the “Best 295 Business Schools” for the ninth consecutive year. Published Oct. 9, the 14th edition of the guidebook profiles elite schools the Princeton Review holds in “high regard for their academic programs.”
The guidebook’s two-page profile of Scranton credits its “Jesuit values” for providing an element of social responsibility to what students learn. In addition to academic rigor and an emphasis on globalization, The Princeton Review noted the student experience was “informed by the principal of Cura Personalis,” or “a respect for and appreciation of another’s unique needs, circumstances and gifts.” Also praised were the University’s strong reputation, technological resources, educational amenities, collaborative environment and “outstanding” faculty, who are accessible, take “pride in teaching,” and “bring real word experience” into the classroom. Also mentioned was the University’s Irwin E. Alperin Financial Center with its simulated trading floor where students “learn via market simulations,” as well as the University’s accreditation by AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Less than five percent of business schools worldwide have earned this distinguished accreditation for excellence in management education.
The guidebook includes empirical information about each school, such as admissions and financial aid, as well as data gathered from surveys of MBA students attending the 295 business schools.
The University of Scranton has also been listed in The Princeton Review’s undergraduate guidebook, “The Best 378 Colleges,” for 12 consecutive years.
