UAB's MBA program is one of nation's best, says Princeton Review

The UAB Collat School of Business MBA program is one of the best in the nation, according The Princeton Review's new 2011 edition of The Best 300 Business Schools. The book was available for purchase at U.S. stores Tuesday, Oct. 12.

The Princeton Review does not rank schools academically or hierarchically but compiles its list based on surveys of 19,000 students from the 300 schools profiled in the book.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the UAB MBA program has placed in the education services company's best business schools list.

In the two-page UAB profile, students praise the MBA program faculty, describing the extensive industry experience of faculty members as a valued commodity that enhances classroom teaching. The school's location in the heart of Alabama's economic center, Birmingham, also earned it high marks from student reviewers.

"The UAB Collat School of Business is establishing itself as a destination institution, and the quality of our MBA program is just one of the many reasons why the business leaders of tomorrow are choosing a business degree from UAB," says David Klock, Ph.D., dean of the UAB Collat School of Business. "We are proud to have the MBA program at UAB appear in The Princeton Review's listing of best business schools for a fifth consecutive year."
