The Wayne State University School of Business Administration is one of the most outstanding businesses schools in the country, according to the education services company The Princeton Review. The company features the school in the 2013 edition of its guidebook “The Best 296 Business Schools.”

“We consider the WSU School of Business Administration one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher at The Princeton Review. “We selected the schools we profile in this book—280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international—based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools,” said Franek.

Students who attend the schools listed in the guidebook, 19,000 in total, rate their school through an 80-question survey. Questions asked in the survey include topics like academics, student body, campus life and the student’s career plans.

The guidebook offers two page profiles for each school listed. The profiles include information on admissions, academics, career placement, student life and the campus environment. In the WSU business school’s profile, The Princeton Review describes the school as one that “helps students get an education above and beyond classroom lectures,” “is affordable” and “is great for networking.”

“We aim to provide students with the tools they need to be successful within their professions,” said Margaret Williams, interim dean of WSU’s business school. “Networking is one of those tools, and based on WSU’s location in the metro Detroit area and that fact that most of our alumni continue to live and work in the area, we can provide strong networking opportunities for our current students, alumni and employers.”

The Princeton Review also reports on admissions selectivity, academic experience, financial aid and career/employment information. The findings were collected during the years of 2011 and 2012. The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools featured in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, nor does it name one school as best overall.
