CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University's College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA) has been named an outstanding business school by The Princeton Review, which features EWU in the 2013 edition of its annual guidebook, The Best 296 Business Schools.
Student input from surveys and data collected from each institution helped identify the top business schools named in the book, which is now available in bookstores nationwide.
"EWU is honored to have our program recognized by The Princeton Review for having a balance of affordability, quality and convenience," said Roberta Brooke, director of EWU's MBA Program. "This is the result of a team effort by all those associated with Eastern, and we will continue to strive for excellence.
"We consider Eastern Washington University's College of Business and Public Administration as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA," said Robert Franek, senior vice president of publishing for The Princeton Review, an education services company. "The schools profiled in this book were chosen based on our high regard for their academic programs."
The Best 296 Business Schools has a two-page profile of Eastern's MBA program, and includes write-ups on EWU's academics, student life and admissions. Eastern receives high marks from MBA students for its flexible schedule, convenient downtown Spokane location and knowledgeable instructors who maintain high academic standards, have strong ties to the business community and are highly regarded amongst their peers.
The guidebook also notes the varying age of CBPA students, who noted in the survey that "the diversity of students and faculty significantly enhances the learning environment and challenges you to think more critically."
