Grove College earns second national honor
The John L. Grove College of Business at Shippensburg
University today (Oct. 9) earned its second national honor this semester.
The Princeton Review named Grove College as one of the best
business schools in the nation in its “The Best 296 Business Schools.” The
annual book was published today.
In September, Grove College was again recognized in
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Undergraduate Business Programs” category.
Grove College Dean John Kooti, in discussing today's honor, said, “Thanks to highly qualified faculty,
dedicated staff and supportive central administration, the John L. Grove
College of Business continues to provide high quality and high value
undergraduate and MBA programs with more than 30 years of AACSB accreditation
and 75 years tradition of excellence in business education. The latest
ranking by Princeton Review is a wonderful testimony to this
AACSB is the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher,
“We consider Grove College 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.A. 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 publication’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. The Princeton Review does not
rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or
name one business school best overall.
The publication includes a two-page profile of Grove
College. The profile includes write-ups on academics, career and placement,
student life and environment, admissions, and quotes from students. One student
is quoted saying that small
class sizes and a good use of technology also facilitate “an intimate learning
experience between professor and student.”
