‘Princeton Review’ Names Duquesne’s Graduate Business School as One of Nation’s Top 294

Duquesne University's Donahue Graduate School of Business is among The Princeton Review's Best 294 Business Schools, 2017 edition, based on how students rate their schools.

"Our recognition by The Princeton Review is, in essence, an affirmation by our students of the value they have received from our programs and faculty," said Dr. Dean McFarlin, business school dean. "We offer an impressive array of graduate degrees delivered by passionate and engaged professors. That said, we will keep innovating. Graduate business education is evolving rapidly, and we remain at the forefront of these changes to serve our students and their career aspirations."

School profiles include admission, academics, financial aid, campus life and career/employment information. The profiles also include school ratings (scores from 60 to 99) in five categories such as admissions selectivity and career statistics, based primarily on institutional data.

"We recommend Duquesne University as one of the best to earn an MBA," said Robert Franek, senior vice president/publisher of The Princeton Review. "We chose the 294 schools in this book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicited and greatly respect the opinions of 25,000 students attending these schools who reported on their experiences at their schools on our 80-question student survey for the book."

Information on the rankings websites is shared about Duquesne's widely recognized full-time MBA with a focus on sustainability, as well as the professional MBA with evening and online classes, a full-time master of accountancy program and master's degrees in information systems management. Additionally, joint degree programs can be pursued for those with interest in environmental science and management, health management systems, industrial pharmacy, law, nursing and more.

The Princeton Review listing is based upon surveys of 25,000 students attending the schools, on average, 74 students per school. An 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools, all accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business or international bodies, on several topics and report on their experiences.
