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 2022.
The Princeton Review has ranked the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business as one of the best business schools in the country for 2022 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 recommend Elon University as an excellent choice for an aspiring MBA,” 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.
“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,” Frankel said. “For our 2022 list we tallied surveys of more than 18,900 students at 241 business schools.”
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.”
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.
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.
