Brookville, N.Y. -- The Princeton Review has again named LIU Post’s business programs among the nation’s best, announcing this week that the College of Management at LIU Post is listed in “The Best 296 Business Schools.”
For the tenth year in a row, LIU Post was recognized in the guidebook as one of the preeminent universities in the country from which to earn a Master of Business Administration degree, and was cited for cutting-edge classes and the solid preparation students receive in general management and learning business in the global economy.
"The Best 296 Business Schools," rates LIU Post among the best in the nation based on data supplied by schools and surveys of students. In the 2013 edition of the guide, editors note the program’s dedicated professors, up-to-date classes, accomplished student body, convenient scheduling and picturesque campus.
"We consider LIU Post one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president - publisher. “We selected the schools we profile in this book -- 280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international -- based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book."
The LIU Post MBA program is accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – one of just five percent of business schools in the world to hold that distinction. The faculty includes graduates of Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Cornell and NYU, as well as Dr. Maura Belliveau, who was named by Business Week as one of the top business school faculty members in the country.
“Students are pleased with the professors’ ability to follow current global events and economic shifts,” the profile reads.
Dr. Andrew Rosman, Dean, College of Management said, “Our inclusion on this list confirms what our students have known all along -- we are a business school of choice. We are proud to be ranked among the top business schools in the nation and we are especially proud of our highly-engaged faculty and staff who are committed to providing our students with intellectual rigor and academic excellence.”
Among the comments from students surveyed by The Princeton Review:
*"I attend night classes, which do not interfere with my daily schedule. As a full-time student I am enrolled in three courses of study, which are highly relevant and have real-world applications."
* "I would truly recommend others for this program. Flexibility is key when you have a full-time job."
*"The differing perspectives at Post help to broaden the overall attitude of students and faculty alike. You learn something new every day."
*"I can see the big difference between my friends in other colleges. I feel gifted for being educated in this school."
The Master of Business Administration at LIU Post is a comprehensive, integrated, 36-to-48 credit program, which combines the highest levels of academic rigor and real-world relevance, in a curriculum that emphasizes ethics and social responsibility. The LIU Post MBA offers several flexible options to support individual interests, career objectives and busy schedules.
Students may pursue their education on a full- or part-time basis in the Campus Program during weeknights and/or in the Saturday Program. The MBA is a general business degree, with electives available in the areas of finance, management, marketing and international business. In addition, LIU Post's accelerated programs allow qualified students to complete their Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree and MBA in only five years.
"The Best 296 Business Schools" has two-page profiles of the schools. They include write-ups on academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions. The profiles also have ratings (scores from 60 to 99) for academic experience, admissions selectivity, and career services.
