Georgia Southern’s College of Business Administration featured in Best 282 Business Schools
Graduate students speak highly of the both the MBA and the Master’s of Accounting program at Georgia Southern University, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features Georgia Southern’s College of Business Administration in the recently published 2007 edition of its Best 282 Business Schools (Random House/Princeton Review).
Best 282 Business Schools has two-page profiles of the included schools with descriptions of their academics, student life, admissions, and career placement services. In a ‘Survey Says…” sidebar, The Princeton Review lists topics that the College of Business Administration (COBA) students it surveyed for the book were in most agreement about.
“The administration at Georgia Southern has been very helpful,” said one student. ‘My schedule has been hectic, but they have worked with me to graduate in a timely manner.” Nearly 100 employers visit the Georgia Southern campus each year. Top employers of graduating MBAs include: Gulfstream Aerospace, Inc.; Memorial Medical Hospital; Great Dane Trucking, Inc.; and Sun Trust Bank.
Many of the full-timers are students who “got their BAs here and just stuck around. One such student explains, “I completed my undergraduate degree at Georgia Southern, and when the MBA program started a concentration in Information Systems, I took the opportunity to continue my education in a field that I am very interested in.”
Georgia Southern’s MBA program boasts “a highly diverse” student body. Students tell us that they “vary widely in terms of race, sex, and culture. Most are working in a related business field, but there are also students who have recently completed their undergraduate degrees and have no related experience to contribute. They range in ages between 23 and 53.” More than 10 percent of the student body is international.
The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from one to 282, or name one business school best overall.
‘We chose 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,” said Robert Franek, vice president of publishing at The Princeton Review. ‘We are pleased to recommend the College of Business Administration at Georgia Southern University to readers of our book and users of our Web site as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA.or an M.Acc.”
