Black School of Business Ranked Among Nation's Best for 7th Consecutive Year

The Black School of Business at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, is featured in “The Best 296 Business Schools: 2015 Edition,” published this month by Princeton Review Books.

The school’s MBA program “provides the best value for a working student in the local area,” according to the Princeton Review, which ranks schools based on academics, job-placement rates and admissions selectivity.

The book includes profiles of each school, with ratings for academics, access to professors and minority representation. A survey of more than 21,000 students and school administrators adds context about campus life and students’ career plans.

“We take pride in this recognition for an important reason: It is based on student feedback,” said Balaji Rajagopalan, director of the Black School of Business. “Our listing in the Princeton Review is recognition of our outstanding faculty, who deliver high-quality programs, and a testimony to the strong support of our partners – businesses in the greater Erie region and beyond, alumni, career services and other schools on campus.”
