The College of Management at the University of Massachusetts Boston is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2012 edition of its book, The Best 294 Business Schools.
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP and Publisher: “We recommend the College of Management at the University of Massachusetts Boston to readers of our book and users of our site, www.PrincetonReview.com, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA. We chose the 294 business schools in this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book."
In the Princeton Review’s profile of UMass Boston’s College of Management, editors describe its programs as “accommodating to working professionals.”
“Full-time and part-time students take classes together” in the evening, and the academic experience is “challenging but manageable while balancing a career and home life.” Students appreciate the ‘highly diverse course work’ offered at UMass Boston, including electives in non-profit management, environmental management, information systems, and healthcare management.” Students also say the program offers “a quality education at a good price.”
"Recognition in The Princeton Review’s Best Business Schools is a significant indicator of our growing stature and impact. This acknowledgement reflects our determination to offer all our students education and services that are first rate in every respect." said College of Management Dean Philip L. Quaglieri.
