The UAB School of Business is one of the best in the world, according to The Princeton Review’s “Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition.” This is the seventh consecutive year the school has been profiled in the annual guidebook.
Rankings are based on a survey of 19,000 students at 296 schools — 280 of which are in the United States, along with 16 international institutions. The surveys analyzed for this edition were completed online during the 2011-12, 2010-11 and 2009-10 academic years. The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in order.
The School of Business was recognized by students for its cutting-edge classes, strong curriculum and flexible schedules. The school’s location in the heart of Alabama’s economic center and the experience of the faculty also received praise from students surveyed.
