The Princeton Review has named the UNCG Bryan School of Business and Economics as one of the top business schools in the country, including the Bryan School in the latest edition of the annual guidebook, “The Best 295 Business Schools,” for the 14th consecutive year.

The recognition is based on feedback from people who know the Bryan School best — current students. They gave the school high marks for its challenging academic programs, supportive environment and affordability.

“I absolutely love the professors in the MBA program,” one student said. “They inspire me to want more out of myself. They aren’t teaching us how to pass a test, they are teaching us how to survive and thrive in the world.”

Bryan faculty received praise for being “well versed in their disciplines and very enthusiastic about teaching” and “effective at integrating recent business trends into the curriculum.” And the school’s emphasis on providing experiences that prepare students for the global economy also was highly regarded by students. “Our study abroad program is superb,” a Bryan student said. “We have a special course for MBA’s in the spring to learn about business in a given country and then visit that country and make business contacts as part of the course.”

Bryan School Dean McRae C. Banks said that the Bryan School is positioned to provide an affordable education to students seeking the skills valued in the job market. “We prepare our students to be strategic thinkers who are able to make an impact as employees and innovators in their workplaces and communities,” he said. “We’ve earned a reputation in the business community as a school that prepares students to be exceptional problem solvers.”  

The Princeton Review surveyed more than 20,300 students and collected data from school administrators to compile the information provided in the book.  The 2014 edition of “The Best 295 Business Schools” was published Oct. 8.
