KALAMAZOO—Western Michigan University's Haworth College of Business is an outstanding business school, according to the education services company, the Princeton Review. The college is featured in the 2013 edition of the Princeton Review's annual guidebook, "The Best 296 Business Schools."
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher, "We consider the Haworth College of Business one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA. We selected the schools we profile in this book—280 of which are in the U.S. and 16 are international—based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book."
The Princeton Review's survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were all completed online and conducted during the 2011-12, 2010-11 and 2009-10 academic years.
"We are proud to be listed in the Princeton Review's guide of "The Best 296 Business Schools," says Dr. Satish Deshpande, associate dean for operations and graduate programs for the Haworth College of Business. "The quality of our academic and co-curricular programs for graduate students is what draws bright, creative, high-quality students to our program year after year."
