The Princeton Review ranks Elon MBA program among best in the country

In its annual rankings of on-campus MBA programs, The Princeton Review listed Elon's Martha and Spencer Love School of Business as one of the best business schools for 2021.

The Princeton Review has ranked the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business as one of the best business schools in the country for 2021 based upon the quality of its on-campus MBA program.

The Princeton Review’s annual guide of top graduate business programs draws data from surveys of thousands of students and administrators at nearly 250 schools around the country, touching on subjects such as academics, the student body, campus life and career plans.

“We strongly recommend these schools for their outstanding MBA programs,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor in chief. “Each school we selected offers stellar academics as well as robust experiential components. We do not tally a hierarchical mega-list of best b-schools overall because our goal, for the 25-plus years we’ve conducted this project, is to help MBA applicants identify the business schools best for them. Our multiple categories of ranking lists are designed to help them do just that.”

The Best Business Schools list includes profiles of each school 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.” A small university in a small town, Elon offers “small class and program size” in which the “average class is fifteen, and large classes are thirty.”

On student noted that “Elon fosters an atmosphere deeply rooted in supporting one another through team-building activities.” Another student said Elon is a school where “professors know students by name. Even Deans know students by name.”

The professors are “open with their time and always willing to meet outside of class,” and most of them “have over twenty 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.
