Ithaca College School Of Business Makes Princeton Review List Of Best In The Nation

ITHACA, NY — The Ithaca College School of Business has again been included among the top business schools in the nation in a listing compiled by the Princeton Review. The education services company features the school’s Master of Business Administration degree programs in the 2010 edition of “The Best 301 Business Schools” — the fourth straight year Ithaca has been so recognized.

“We chose the 301 business schools in this book based on our opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president of publishing. “We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences. We are pleased to recommend Ithaca to readers of our book and users of our site,, as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA.”

Students in Ithaca’s graduate business program can choose between an MBA in business administration and an MBA in professional accountancy. These intensive programs both provide instruction in management; the latter focuses on such elements of accounting as taxation and business law principles.

“Our faculty have worked very hard to build and deliver a quality MBA experience,” said Donald Eckrich, professor of marketing and law and MBA program director. “Because our program must schedule everything to fit within 10 months, our students often take all required courses together. The fortunate consequence is a tight-knit and highly interactive group full of pride for their shared accomplishments. The GPA and GMAT profiles of our students have grown consistently to where we can stand proudly and successfully among some pretty stiff competition.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 301. The book features two-page profiles of each school, with ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. Among other words of praise, Ithaca students surveyed for the listing cited “a course offering that honestly reflects the interests of students” and the school’s outstanding facilities: “Everything from the smart boards in the classrooms — which help make articulating difficult accounting concepts much easier — to the trading room is state-of-the-art.”

Accredited by AACSB International, the Ithaca College School of Business is housed in the Dorothy D. and Roy H. Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise, the first facility for a college or university business school in the world to earn platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
