TCU MBA STUDENTS HONOR NEELEY’S OPERATIONS/SUPPLY CHAIN AMONG BEST IN THE COUNTRY

  Neeley One Of 15 Schools Nationwide Named In The Princeton Review’s “Student Opinion Honors”

The Neeley School of Business at TCU is among only 15 schools in the nation named in the Operations (Supply Chain Management) category in The Princeton Review’s 2nd annual “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” list. The list appears in the April 2010 issue of Entrepreneur.

Compiled by The Princeton Review, the education services company, the “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” covers six categories: Operations (Supply Chain Management), Accounting, Finance, General Management, Global Management and Marketing. Each list names the 15 graduate schools of business that were the rated the highest by their students evaluating their MBA program. 

“The increasing connection among global markets has pushed careers in operations to the forefront, so this honor is especially important,” said Bill Cron, Associate Dean for Graduate Programs at the Neeley School. “Our Supply Chain Management program provides the strategic framework for the coordination of organizations, people activities, information and resources that are required to deliver a product or service to the customer. Neeley’s Supply and Value Chain Center is a real bonus for students studying this field, since it provides executive forums, research, a student organization, and a popular annual conference.”

The business schools appear in alphabetical order and are not ranked 1 to 15.  The lists are also posted at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges and www.PrincetonReview.com/studentopinionhonors.aspx.

The Princeton Review compiled the lists using data from its national survey of 19,000 MBA students attending business schools profiled in its book, Best 301 Business Schools: 2010 Edition.  The 80-question survey asked students to report on classroom and campus experiences at their schools and rate their MBA programs in several areas.

Says Robert Franek, SVP/Publisher, The Princeton Review: “We commend the schools on these lists for the outstanding job they are doing in preparing their students to apply their MBA training beyond the classroom to successful job searches and productive careers.  We know this will be particularly meaningful to b-school applicants in these challenging economic times.”

“B-schools are more creative than ever at finding ways to bridge the gap between academia and business,” says Amy Cosper, VP/editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “The Student Opinion Honors couldn’t be timelier for those considering a b-school education as a part of their entrepreneurial journey. Taking a deeper look at how these schools have managed to gain class approval would be the first act of due diligence readying them for business ownership.”
