The Graduate School of Management (GSOM) at Clark University is once again selected as one of the nation’s outstanding business schools by The Princeton Review, which features the school in the new 2015 edition of “The Best 296 Business Schools.”
The Princeton Review tallied its Best Business School list based on feedback from 21,600 students attending the 296 business schools. Survey data results in rating scores on a scale of 60 to 99 covering five categories: Academic Experience, Admissions Selectivity, Career, Professors Interesting, and Professors Accessible. The book's two-page profiles of each school include sections on student life and graduates' employment data.
“We are pleased to once again be recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the nation’s best business schools,” said GSOM Dean Catherine Usoff. “I am particularly proud of the passion, initiative and commitment of our students, faculty and staff. We strive to be highly regarded as a diverse community of learners, researchers and business professionals that prepares future leaders to think critically, manage collaboratively and contribute to their organizations and society.”
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools hierarchically, instead focusing on topics that give applicants a broad range of information to determine which school might be the best fit for them. Among the ratings for which the Clark GSOM scored high marks were Academic Experience, Professor Accessibility, and Career services.
According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We chose the 296 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 solicited and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book."
The GSOM offers a full-time and part-time MBA with concentrations in accounting, finance, global business, general management, marketing, management information systems, sustainability and social change, as well as an MS in accounting, an MS in finance and two dual degrees: MBA/MA in Community Development and Planning and MBA/MS in Environmental Science and Policy.
