The Mike Ilitch School of Business is one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company included the Ilitch School once again on its annual list, “Best Business Schools for 2022.”

The Ilitch School also was included on the publication’s 2022 list of Best Business Schools in the Midwest, which includes the top 45 in-person M.B.A. programs across the region.

“We recommend the Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University as an excellent choice for an aspiring M.B.A.,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. He noted that the company chose the schools for its 2022 list based on data from the company’s surveys of administrators at business schools during the 2020-21 academic year. The administrator survey, which numbered more than 300 questions, covered topics from academic offerings and admission requirements to data about current students as well as graduates’ employment. 

Franek added, “What makes our Best Business Schools list unique is that we factor in data from our surveys of students attending the schools about their campus and classroom experiences. For our 2022 list we tallied surveys of more than 18,900 students at 241 business schools.”  The Princeton Review’s 80-question student survey asked students about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys were conducted during the 2020-21, 2019–20 and 2018–19 academic years.
