Elon MBA named nation's #4 'best administered' program

The Princeton Review gives top marks to the MBA program of Elon's Martha and Spencer Love School of Business.

The Princeton Review ranks Elon the nation's #4 "best administered" business school and also ranks Elon among the top business schools in the Southeast in its 2017 edition of the "Best 294 Business Schools."

The Princeton Review’s annual guide of top graduate business programs is based on data provided by schools and a survey of 25,000 business school students and administrators across the nation.

"The Best 294 Business Schools: 2017 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, career placement, student life and environment, and admissions. In the profile on Elon, the Princeton Review editors wrote the following, including quotes from Elon students:

Elon University’s Martha and Spencer Love School of Business has a “great reputation” as “a specialized MBA for full-time working professionals.” Students praise Elon’s “leadership philosophy,” “learning culture,” and “great program flexibility.” Elon focuses “on engaged learning, top quality of content taught, [and] values-based leadership. . . . It’s why their reputation is growing so rapidly,” one student notes.

There is nothing that students rave about more than the “top-notch” and “amazing” administration who “all work very well together and make you feel at home.” The professors are “open with their time and always willing to meet outside of class,” and most of them “have over 20 years experience in their fields.” Professors bring this “real business experience” to class, and courses themselves are “largely current event and real world driven.” Professors “offer challenging work, but are also always there to help.”

The Martha and Spencer Love School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business — the premier accrediting agency for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in accounting, management and business administration.
