Princeton Review Features Neeley in Best 282 Business School 2007 Edition



The Neeley School of Business at TCU has been named one of the nation's most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company profiles the Neeley School in the just-published 2007 edition of the "Best 282 Business Schools." In addition to its profile in the book, the school was ranked #9 in Best Campus Facilities.

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP-Publishing: "We choose schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools. We are pleased to recommend TCU's Neeley School of Business to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA."

Students said that Neeley's greatest strengths "all have to do with its size. Because it is small, students' needs are recognized and addressed quickly, professors give students a lot of attention, and the students are all very close. It all makes for good learning environment and good networking."

According to one second-year student, "The professors are great teachers and are available at all times." Instruction is often integrated; "course material overlaps, and we are looking at similar issues from different perspectives in different classes," another student said. One student commented that Neeley's location in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex offers excellent "networking opportunities and close ties to companies in the area."

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 282, or name one business school best overall. The book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. ( www.PrincetonReview.com )

Ten lists are based on surveys of 18,000 students attending the 282 business schools. One list, "Toughest to Get Into," is based solely on institutional data. The Neeley School of Business puts bright minds to work in a personal, connected and real environment. Personalized education and career development help students develop and succeed. Brilliant faculty, renowned executives and major corporations make powerful connections. Students do real work for real clients with real challenges.

The Wall Street Journal ranks Neeley's MBA program #11, the highest ranked business school in Texas for the second year in a row. BusinessWeek ranks Neeley's undergraduate program #33 out of 1,400. Neeley ranks #9 for Best Campus Facilities by The Princeton Review. Everything we do is geared toward forging the next generation of leaders - one unique person at a time.
