COBE and MBA Program Score High in Princeton Review

RADFORD – The Radford University College of Business and Economics (COBE) and its Master of Business Administration Program were recognized as leaders in “Student Opinion Honors” by the Princeton Review‘s latest edition of its college guidebook.

COBE and the MBA program were identified by survey respondents as offering superlative preparation in the business competency of marketing and joined 14 other universities recognized for strength in preparation in marketing. The survey rates RU with leading business schools such as Duke, Harvard, Indiana, Northwestern, California-Berkeley and Missouri in the category which reflects overall student satisfaction with the program in marketing. The Princeton Review’s rankings are based on surveys of 19,000 current business students at nearly 300 business schools.

“Recognition by The Princeton Review is a nice pat on the back for our graduate faculty, marketing faculty and our students,” said COBE dean Faye Gilbert.

COBE is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the hallmark of excellence in business education. COBE is dedicated to providing an active learning environment focused on developing responsible business professionals who work collaboratively to compete in a dynamic global economy.
