In its 2023 Best Business Schools rankings, The Princeton Review has once again listed Cal State San Bernardino among the best for its business, MBA and entrepreneurial programs.
For Best Business Schools, CSUSB was listed among 243 colleges and universities in the nation and among 62 in the West.
Under the MBA rankings, CSUSB was listed among the Best on Campus MBA programs. In the Top 50 Best Online MBA programs, CSUSB was ranked 32nd in the nation, among the top 4 in California and first in the state in public universities.
In the Top 50 Graduate Entrepreneurship Programs in the nation, CSUSB was ranked 44th in the nation, 8th in the Top 9 Entrepreneurship Programs in the West, among the top 4 in California and second in the state in public universities behind UCLA.
“The recognition of the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration as one of the top business schools in the country and a leading public institution in California reflects not only the quality of our programs and the transformative power of the student experience we offer, but also the impact we have on the communities we serve,” said Tomás Gomez-Arias, dean of the CSUSB Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration.
Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor in chief wrote in a news release, “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.”
For the entrepreneurial rankings, Franek wrote, “We strongly recommend these schools on our entrepreneurship studies lists for 2023. Their faculties are outstanding. Their programs have robust mentoring components, and their students receive networking support that will serve them for years to come.”
According to the company, its “business school rankings incorporate student opinion as well as institutional data, and cover many different categories to help prospective applicants find the MBA programs that best fit their needs and goals. We consider many factors, from the quality of professors to emerging career paths like sustainability management.”
The online MBA survey for students, which also evaluated more than 30 unique fields, allowed students to rate their faculty, their fellow students, career preparation, academics, the technology platform, and overall satisfaction with their programs. The school survey included questions on student persistence, admissions selectivity, faculty and staff, technology and support, cost and aid, career, attendance, and alumni giving.
The Princeton Review chose the schools for its 2023 undergraduate and graduate entrepreneurship rankings based on surveys of schools conducted from June through August 2022. Nearly 300 schools reported data about their entrepreneurship offerings.
For the entrepreneurial survey, the methodology included academics and requirements, students and faculty, alumni entrepreneurial ventures, outside the classroom programs such as competitions hosted by the school/program, and scholarships and aid.
