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 2013 edition of its book, The Best 296 Business Schools.
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We consider the College of Management at the University of Massachusetts Boston one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA. We selected the schools we profile in this book—280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international—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 these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question 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.”

"The College of Management is honored to once again to be recognized in The Princeton Review’s Best Business Schools. Such recognition validates our commitment to offering our students outstanding academic opportunities and services. We have an outstanding faculty and staff here in the college and they continually push forward the success of our students and the overall quality of our programs," said College of Management Dean Philip L.
