Princeton Review: AU's among Best in Business

The College of Business at Alfred University is one of the best in the country, according to The Princeton Review. AU’s business school is included in the 2012 edition of "The Best 294 Business Schools," published by Random House and on sale now.

"We recommend the Alfred University College of Business to readers of our book and users of our website,, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn a Master of Business Administration degree," said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher. "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 in our survey for the book."

"Once again, we are pleased to be included in The Princeton Review’s guide to the best business schools," said Nancy Evangelista, associate provost and acting dean of the College of Business. "It is one thing for us to tell prospective students how good we think our program is, but it’s even better when affirmation comes from an outside source that impartially looks at hundreds of programs across the country."

Both the graduate and undergraduate programs at Alfred University’s College of Business are accredited by the AACSB, a distinction only a small percentage of business programs in the world achieve.

"If you are looking for an ‘intimate environment’ for your MBA experience, Alfred University is well worth a look," according to The Princeton Review.

One student told reviewers, "The greatest strength of Alfred University is its size." Classes are small, and "the interaction is incredible." Professors, students said, "Work hard to make sure you understand what they are teaching, but they also expect you to do your share of the work." Students also appreciate the diversity of the faculty, who "have a lot of experience in the business world."
Another strength of Alfred University’s MBA program is its 100 percent placement rate for graduates.

"The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition" features two-page profiles of each school, focusing on academics, student life, and admissions, plus ratings for academics, selectivity, and career placement services.
