Princeton Review Rates WCU College of Business One of Best in the Nation

The Princeton Review has listed Western Carolina University’s College of Business as one of the best schools in the United States at which to earn a degree in business. The education services company profiled the WCU college in the 2014 edition of its guidebook, “The Best 295 Business Schools,” which is based on surveys of more than 20,000 students in business programs around the world. Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president and publisher, said, “We recommend Western Carolina 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 the schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book.” WCU’s College of Business and its MBA program has been recognized by the Princeton Review for several consecutive years and this represents a point of pride, College of Business dean, Darrell Parker. He said, “This important external examination of our college lets us know we are offering programs of high quality that are meeting the needs of our students and of the region’s businesses that will hire them once they graduate.” The College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which is widely regarded as the international benchmark for business school quality.For more information about the College of Business at WCU, visit the website business.wcu.edu or call 828-227-7412.
