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 2023.
The Princeton Review has ranked the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business as one of the best business schools in the country for 2023 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 these schools highly and with great regard for the MBA programs they offer,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “Since we developed our b-school rankings more than two decades ago, our goal, every year, has been to help applicants choose the MBA programs best for them. This is why we collect a broad range of data to compile rankings in multiple categories. In our opinion, no b-school is #1 in all aspects, nor is any b-school ideal for all applicants. However, every MBA program — on-campus as well as online — that made our lists for 2023 offers outstanding academics, superb experiential components, and impressive career services. As important, every one garnered positive ratings from MBA students we surveyed who attend—or are recent grads of—the program.”
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 its 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.”
One student noted that “the program is administered with the touch of a five-star hotel.” 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, business analytics and business administration.
