Wednesday, October 12, 2011

PHILADELPHIA (Oct. 11, 2011) - Saint Joseph’s University’s Haub School of Business is an outstanding business school, according to the 2012 edition of Princeton Review’s “The Best 294 Business Schools.”

“We chose the 294 business schools included in this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools,” says Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher. “We recommend Saint Joseph’s Haub School to readers as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA.”

Of the MBA program, Saint Joseph’s students reported the education “offers a great mix of academic teachings and real-life experiences.” Professors “have a lot of experience in the private industry” and “are able to apply their private industry experience to their teachings.” “They are great at applying theory to practical, everyday situations and throughout the world” and are “genuinely interested and passionate about their field of study, and it shows through their teaching.”

The Haub School recently revamped the MBA Curriculum to better reflect the evolving job market and an increased student need for flexibility. Haub School of Business Dean Joseph A. DiAngelo Jr., Ed.D. ’70 said these efforts contributed considerably to the school’s reputation among students and industry executives. “Enrollment in our MBA program has increased significantly over recent years; we’ve just added an online format; and we’ve made improvements to the curriculum,” he said. “These efforts are visible; we’re proud to be recognized for our achievements.”

The Haub School is an international AACSB-accredited institution in business and accounting offering programs at the bachelor's, master's and executive master's levels. Both the undergraduate and graduate programs are included in the U.S.News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” 2012 edition. The Haub School has been recognized by the Aspen Institute as one of the Top 100 business schools in the world in its 2010-2011 edition of Beyond Grey Pinstripes for its leadership in integrating ethical issues into graduate business curricula. The school has been recognized for seven consecutive years by Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society for AACSB-accredited institutions, with the Gold, Silver or Bronze Chapter Award.
