The Princeton Review tallied its lists based on its surveys of 41,100 students overall attending the schools profiled in the books – including 21,600 students attending the 296 business schools and 19,500 students attending the 169 law schools. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their experiences at them.
Marist MBA students told The Princeton Review of the “high quality of the program and professors,” who are “accessible and very helpful.” Others mentioned “rigorous and academically competitive” classes. Still others spoke of Marist’s extensive experience with online learning, which helps ensure that students – especially working professionals – can easily enroll in courses, collaborate with classmates, interact with professors, and succeed in the program.
Indeed, in 1998, Marist College launched the first AACSB-accredited, fully-online MBA program in New York State, and one of the first in the nation.
Elsewhere in its profile of Marist, The Princeton Review notes the College’s long-standing relationships with employers like IBM, Morgan Stanley, MetLife, Gap, Wells Fargo and others, which aid students in putting their MBAs to work.
In August, The Princeton Review included Marist in The Best 379 Colleges: 2015 Edition, the 12th-consecutive year the College was included on this prestigious list.
Marist’s MBA program is also highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report, which lists it as the 46th best online graduate business program in the country.
