GVSU makes 'Best Business School' guide

Posted on

Grand Valley State University’s Seidman College of Business has been named by the Princeton Review as one of the ‘Best 294 Business Schools’ for 2012.

The rankings are based on a survey of business school students conducted during the 2010-11, 2009-10 and 2008-09 academic years. The 80-question survey asks students about their school’s academics, student body and campus life, themselves and their career plans. At the time of the survey, 266 students were enrolled in the business school, 88 percent were part-time students. The average age at entry was 31.

Grand Valley graduate students in the MBA program said they truly appreciate their “smart” and “efficient” professors. They said professors work diligently to “instill real-world principles” in their students and know how to demonstrate “solutions to everyday business problems.” Students also said it is very clear that faculty “truly care about the students.”

The Princeton Review complied its lists based on surveys of more than 19,000 students at the best AACSB-accredited MBA programs in the world.
