TU’s Collins College of Business cited by Princeton Review

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

The Collins College of Business at The University of Tulsa has been named one of the nation’s top business schools by The Princeton Review, according to the 2013 edition of its “The Best 296 Business Schools” released this month.

A two-page profile in the book on the Collins College of Business cites the college’s focus on career preparation for students and the low student-to-faculty ratio. The Princeton Review’s 80-question survey asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.

“It’s a privilege for the Collins College of Business to be featured in a book that’s based on the valuable feedback of our students who we are here to serve,” said Gale Sullenberger, dean of the Collins College of Business. “We owe much appreciation to our partners and friends in the business community who provide input so we can continually improve our programs and develop the best possible graduates who are ready to contribute immediately in the business world.”

The Princeton Review editors said the MBA program at Collins College of Business is constantly working to remain on the cutting edge with an eye toward industry trends. They also praised the administrators and faculty saying that although classes are difficult and grades are competitive, the professors are able to drive home the overall picture of what students are studying and why. The book does not rank the business schools on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall.

The Collins College of Business is accredited at both the undergraduate and graduate levels by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the highest standard of achievement for business schools. Less than one-third of U.S. business schools and less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide meet the standards of AACSB International.
