Whitman in Top 15 for Operations by Princeton Review/Entrepreneur Magazine

The Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University is one of 15 schools of business named to The Princeton Review’s “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” in the category of operations. These rankings will appear in the April 2009 issue of Entrepreneur, the nation’s leading publication for and about entrepreneurs.

The Princeton Review, the education services company, measured student opinions about six components of an MBA program: accounting, finance, general management, global management, marketing, and operations. From the 19,000 MBA students at 296 business schools nationwide, the review listed the top 15 (in no particular order) that were most highly rated by students evaluating their MBA program’s preparation in specific categories.

The 80-question survey asked students to report on classroom and campus experiences at their schools and rate their MBA programs in several areas. The Princeton Review tallied the “Student Opinion Honors” lists based on students’ assessments of how well (on a five-point scale) they felt their business school courses had prepared them to succeed in each of the six areas.

“The Whitman School is honored that our competency in operations is considered among the best nationwide by MBA students,” says Melvin T. Stith, dean of the Whitman School. “Recognitions like these are wonderful external acknowledgments of the high-quality and competitive experiences the Whitman School offers students.”
