Princeton Review Best Business Schools 2017

Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management has been included in the 2017 edition of The Princeton Review’s Best 294 Business Schools, an annual ranking of graduate business schools that offer academically outstanding degrees.

“I am honored that the Sellinger School has been recognized once again for embracing an educational approach that helps future business leaders understand not just business operations, but the relevance of business in our world,” said Kathleen Getz, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School.

For the 2017 guide, The Princeton Review surveyed 25,000 students at all American graduate business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and some prestigious accredited international business schools. The survey asked students about their school’s academics, student body and campus life, and their career plans, and The Princeton Review selected the best 294 schools based on responses to questions in these categories. Schools are not ranked hierarchically.

Students surveyed in Loyola’s graduate business programs said the Sellinger School attracts high-caliber individuals who are “very motivated and intelligent,” adding that “everyone brings something unique”—creating an “innovative, challenging, and intellectually stimulating culture.”

This year the Sellinger School earned reaffirmation of accreditation for its business and accounting degree programs by AACSB, the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools. AACSB accreditation has been earned by fewer than 5 percent of the world’s business programs. There are more than 760 business schools globally that have earned AACSB accreditation, and only 183 institutions hold an additional specialized AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs. Loyola is among 1.5 percent of business schools that have earned this dual AACSB accreditation.

The Princeton Review ranking follows prominent recognition for the Sellinger School in spring 2016, when U.S. News & World Report included the Sellinger School among the nation’s best business schools for graduate specialties in accounting, finance, and information systems.
