The Princeton Review lauds USDs Beacom School of Business
In the publication’s 2009 edition of "Best 296 Business Schools," available on newsstands Oct. 7, the "Best 296 Business Schools" ranks USD’s Beacom School of Business with business schools from institutions such as the University of Virginia, Indiana University and Stanford University. The Princeton Review compiled the list based on its surveys of 19,000 students and on school-reported data. Categories surveyed included "Best Career Prospects," "Best Campus Facilities" and "Best Classroom Facilities."
"We compile our ranking lists in multiple categories based on what students report to us about their schools to help applicants decide which of these schools we believe to be academically outstanding will be best for them," stated Robert Franek, vice president of publishing, Princeton Review. Franek also noted that schools listed in the guidebooks are not ranked academically nor are they ranked hierarchically in any single category.
The Princeton Review commended USD’s quality and convenience citing a supportive academic atmosphere that stresses valuable classroom interaction, study abroad opportunities and the unique opportunities offered to graduates of the School of Business by the USD Career Development Center.
Established in 1927, the Beacom School of Business is the only nationally accredited business program in South Dakota and receives praise in the "Best 296 Business Schools" edition for "despite its low cost," USD "maintains high-quality academic programs" and credits professors at The U for their "networking" and "ability to emphasize placement services" for Beacom School of Business graduates.
