Grove College earns national honor from The Princeton Review

The John L. Grove College of Business at Shippensburg University was named today by The Princeton Review as one of the top business schools in the nation in its 2017 edition of “The Best 294 Business Schools.”

The publication does not rank schools numerically or name an overall best business school.

In September, Grove College’s graduate program was recognized nationally by U.S. News and World Report, which in its 2017 edition of “Best Colleges” ranked the college’s online MBA program tied for 97th and part-time MBA program tied for 130th.

“Being listed among the top business programs by The Princeton Review again this year really is a validation of our commitment to provide a high-quality education to our students,” said Dr. John Kooti, dean of Grove College. “This ranking cannot be accomplished without the dedication of faculty and staff to provide the best academic and professional experiences to our students.”

The Princeton Review surveyed 25,000 students attending the schools included in the book. The rankings factor in data from surveys conducted during the 2015-16, 2014-15 and 2013-14 academic years.

The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several topics, including academics, student body and campus life, as well as about their own career goals.

All institutional data used to tally the rankings were collected in 2015-16.

“The schools we selected for this guide all offer academically outstanding degrees. We recommend them highly,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher of The Princeton Review. “Their program offerings vary considerably, and we salute and highlight those distinctions in our profiles.

“Our purpose is not to rank schools hierarchically or crown any school as ‘best’ overall. Our goal is to provide school profiles combined with multiple rating scores and ranking lists to help applicants choose the best business school for them,” he added.
