For the fifth straight year, California State University, Northridge has been named an outstanding business school by the Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2012 edition of its book, “The Best 294 Business Schools.”
“The Best 294 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools and their MBA programs with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on Northridge, Princeton Review editors wrote “California State University, Northridge offers an affordable and convenient option for a graduate degree in business,” calling its College of Business and Economics “comparable to other major business schools, such as USC and UCLA, but much easier on your pocketbook and personal life.”
The editors quoted MBA students who said, “Every course has applications to real-world business situations,” and noted the program concludes with a mandatory three-unit consulting project for a business in the community.
“The courses are solid and the students really raise the bar. You know that most of the students will be reading, studying, memorizing and applying the material,” one student enthused.
William Jennings, dean of CSUN’s College of Business and Economics said, “We are pleased once again to be recognized by Princeton Review as among the finest MBA programs in the country. Our faculty are committed to preparing our students well for their future success and for working in a global economy.”
