The College of Management at the University of Massachusetts Boston is one of the nation’s best business schools, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2014 edition of its book, The Best 295 Business Schools.
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend College of Management at the University of Massachusetts Boston as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree. We chose the schools we profiled 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 these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book." The Princeton Review's survey asks business school students about their school's academics, student body, and campus life, as well as about themselves and their career plans.
In the profile on UMass Boston’s College of Management, the Princeton Review editors describe that the program “combines strategically focused management curriculum with optional specializations," offering in-state residents one of “the best educational values in the Boston area.” They quote students attending the College of Management who were surveyed by The Princeton Review for the book. Among the student comments, students report that “classes are tailored to meet the needs of working students” and they are “small and personal.” Students describe that most students at UMass Boston are working professionals with “diverse working backgrounds” who are “committed to bettering themselves."
“We are especially proud of this recognition. Our classes are characterized by lively discussions and deep engagement with complex, contemporary issues for business and society. Students bring tremendous insights from their varied work experiences, and our faculty draw upon their excellence in research to enrich the curriculum,” says Interim Dean Maureen Scully.
