UM-Flint business school ranked among nation's best

The School of Management at the University of Michigan-Flint has been named in The Princeton Review's list of â??The Best 296 Business Schools.â??

â??We consider UM-Flintâ??s School of Management one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA,â?? said Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher in a news release. â??We selected the schools we profile in this book â?? 280 of which are in the USA and 16 are international â?? 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.â??

A month ago, UM-Flint's School of Management was also honored as one of the "Best Undergraduate Business Programs in the Midwest" by U.S. News.

The Princeton Reviewâ??s survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their schoolâ??s academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were conducted during the 2009-2012 academic years.

â??We are very pleased to have been recognized by Princeton Review in their 2013 annual guide book of Best Business Schools. This recognition succinctly reflects the quality of our academic programs. It could not have been achieved without the dedication and hard work of our faculty and staff,â?? noted Vahid Lotfi, senior vice provost and acting dean of SOM. The recognition is also partly based upon feedback from our students, many of whom face complex lives. We are truly proud of them.â??

Some of the comments from students attending SOM in the profile include: â??If you are looking for a â??prestigious top school for managementâ?? that offers a great deal of â??flexibility,â?? then consider the University of Michigan-Flint School of Management. The MBA program is â??very structured and organized.â??â??
