The Princeton Review Names Bentley's McCallum Graduate School Among the Best Business Schools in the Nation


MBA, News

The Bentley University McCallum Graduate School of Business is one of the Best Business Schools in the country, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features The McCallum Graduate School in the new 2011 edition of its book, "The Best 300 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review). Bentley is listed among the Best Business Schools in the Northeast and is ranked # 1 in the nation for its state-of-the-art campus facilities, based on student surveys.

The "Best 300 Business Schools" guide has two-page profiles of each school with summaries of academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for academics, selectivity and career placement services.

In the "Survey Says. . ." sidebar in the profile, The Princeton Review lists topics that Bentley students are in most agreement about.  The Bentley profile can be viewed here.

Student comments included:

  • "Bentley offers 'the most modern technology available' with 'real-world work experience' to provide 'the best mix of price, location, and quality.'"
  • "Bentley's Nathan R. Miller Center for Career Services (CCS) 'offers a great deal of support in finding career opportunities' for the school's MBAs."
  • "'Campus activities are in abundance, from professional to entertainment. There is usually at least one club or association hosting an event open to the whole school body' at any time."
  • "Bentley's 'accounting program is the best around,' excelling in both general accounting and taxation. Information technology, unsurprisingly, is also an area of strength."

The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 300, or name one business school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 19,000 students attending the 300 business schools profiled in the book. (Only schools that permitted The Princeton Review to survey their students were eligible for consideration for these lists.) Conducted during the 2009-10, 2008-09, and 2007-08 academic years, the student surveys were primarily completed online. One list, "Toughest to Get Into," is based solely on institutional data. (All schools in the book were eligible for consideration for this list.) The lists are posted at
