KSU business school
receives high marks
Kent State University’s College of Business Administration undergraduate and graduate programs recently placed in the top rankings of two major news publications.
The Kent State College of Business Administration’s master of business administration programs were recognized in the Princeton Review’s “The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools hierarchically from one to 295, or name a best business school overall. Instead, it reports 11 ranking lists, and each list names the top 10 schools in a specific category.
“For the College of Business Administration to be listed in the Princeton Review’s 2014 best business schools ranking is a testament to the outstanding faculty and staff who develop and deliver excellent business education programs, publish research and engage with the business community,” said Deborah Spake, dean of KSU’s College of Business Administration.
Last month, Kent State also placed in the “Best Undergraduate Business Programs,” ranking 159 out of 342 by U.S. News & World Report from its 2014 edition of “Best Colleges.” Since the 2013 edition, KSU moved up in the ranking from 166 to 159.
Overall, KSU earned a coveted spot in the first-tier list in the “Best National Universities” category and also received a “Top Public School, National Universities” ranking.
