Radford's College of Business and Economics Listed Among Nation's Best

For the fifth consecutive year, Radford University’s outstanding MBA program has earned recognition for the RU College of Business and Economics (COBE) by The Princeton Review, which lists the university in its "Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition."

"Based on our high opinion of their academic programs and our review of institutional data, we recommend Radford University as one of the best institutions our readers could attend to earn an MBA," said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s senior vice president for publishing.

In its "Survey Says" section, The Princeton Review recaps the consensus of its 80-question survey of RU students and alumni. The university was cited for its solid preparation in management, friendly students and good peer network.

COBE Dean Faye Gilbert said, "It is always an honor to receive national recognition based on accolades from students. The MBA program at Radford is a great value where students learn in partnership with outstanding faculty members."

The Princeton Review describes the RU Master of Business Administration as "a very student-friendly program." The publication quotes a survey of RU business students in which the MBA program is described as one that "does not skimp on content or focus." Another RU MBA student is quoted as saying, "Those who want the knowledge and skills to run an organization, even a global one, will be hard-pressed to find a better school, especially for the price."
