Cal State San Bernardino’s College of Business and Public Administration is one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features CSUSB in the new 2011 edition of its book, “The Best 300 Business Schools.”

“Our M.B.A. program has been recommended to prospective students as one of the best in the nation for several consecutive years,” said Karen Dill Bowerman, dean of CSUSB’s College of Business and Public Administration.

“I was pleased to read in The Princeton Review that M.B.A. students surveyed are reporting benefit in areas targeted for strategic growth such as the special leadership and professional development experiences that we offer both in the curriculum and as supplemental programs.”

Bowerman said examples of development experiences for M.B.A. students includes: encouraging them to attend faculty research seminars, when faculty present research findings that expand beyond traditional teaching and also student eligibility for scholarship support for participation in study abroad programs to increase hands-on understanding of international business.

"The Best 300 Business Schools: 2011 Edition" has twopage profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life, and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity, and career placement services. In the profile on Cal State San Bernardino, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as offering "a good mix of practical and theoretical business applications and concepts" in a program that delivers in a variety of disciplines, all "at a very good price."

The Princeton Review found from students it surveyed that CSUSB’s College of Business and Public Administration is the perfect size, "small enough that you can build relationships with the professors and administration, but also big enough to give students some independence and freedom to do things on their own."

The university’s various business programs were recognized in the survey, including the entrepreneurship program and the college’s Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship, a research center that promotes entrepreneurship in the surrounding area. The university’s operations management curriculum also was considered to be very strong.

Students at Cal State San Bernardino may pursue either a part-time or full-time M.B.A. with one of eight concentrations: account ing, entrepreneurship, finance, information assurance and security management, information management, management, marketing, and operations management/supply chain management.

In a "Survey Says" sidebar in the profile, The Princeton Review lists topics that surveyed CSUSB students were in most agreement about. The list includes: "friendly students, good social scene, good peer network, cutting-edge classes and smart classrooms.”

"We are pleased to recommend Cal State San Bernardino to readers of our book and users of our site, www.PrincetonReview.com, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an M.B.A.” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publishing.

“We chose the 300 business schools in this book based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book."
