Grove College earns second national honor

The John L. Grove College of Business at Shippensburg University has earned its second national honor this semester.

The Princeton Review has named Grove College as one of the best business schools in the nation in its “The Best 295 Business Schools.” The annual book was published Oct. 8.

In September, Grove College was again recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Undergraduate Business Programs” category. The college was ranked 342 out of 681 undergraduate programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The ranking was determined in survey last spring of deans and senior faculty at all AACSB accredited undergraduate business programs.

According to Robert Franek, The Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher, “We recommend Grove College as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book 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 student survey for the book.”

The Princeton Review’s survey asks business school students about their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The publication does not rank the schools on a single hierarchical list, or name one business school best overall.

Institutions profiled in the publication have rating scores in five categories based on institutional data collected during the 2012-13 academic year and/or the student survey. Rating categories are: Academic experience, admissions selectivity, career, professors interesting and professors accessible.
