Saint Joseph's One of Princeton Review's "Best"
Haub School of Business acclaimed in student survey
Wednesday, October 10, 2007
PHILADELPHIA (October 10, 2007) - For a school that prides itself on its technological advancement, an ethics-driven curriculum and the cultivation of interpersonal skills, it's no surprise that Saint Joseph's University's Erivan K. Haub School of Business (HSB) has once again landed in Princeton Review's Best 290 Business Schools. The Haub School is profiled in the latest 2008 edition among other prestigious business schools.
The Review, which arrived in bookstores yesterday, is based on surveys of nearly 20,000 students who attend AACSB-accredited law and business schools across the globe. The 80-question assessment asks students about academic rigor, student body and campus life, and their own projected career plans. The schools included are not ranked academically or hierarchically, but are presented alphabetically and objectively. The Review doesn't present a "best overall school" because it believes in allowing students to decide for themselves what the best school would be based on their own criteria.
Of the students polled, many praised the Haub School's "great faculty . . . [who are] knowledgeable and surprisingly accessible," in addition to the flexibility of the business program; the M.B.A.'s part-time offering "allows working professionals to design their education around personal and work schedules," said one student. Another student stated, "I have been able to apply 90 percent of what I learn in class to my job and personal life." Other students referenced Saint Joseph's Jesuit mission of cura personalis and its important role in campus life and coursework.
"It's rewarding to hear the feedback from our students about the highlights of the business school," said HSB Dean Joseph DiAngelo, Ed.D. "We're very excited to be included by Princeton Review and look forward to further enriching each student's experience in HSB."
