RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — The University of California, Riverside School of Business Administration is among the top 10 business schools with the greatest opportunities for minority students and among the top 295 business schools in the nation, according to the 2016 edition of The Princeton Review’s book, “The Best 295 Business Schools.”

“The University of California, Riverside is a leader among public institutions in diversity and accessibility and the School of Business Administration reflects that mission in the diversity of the students in its programs,” said Yunzeng Wang, dean of the School of Business Administration.

He added: “Whether national and international, our diverse student body all share the same passion to aim high and achieve success, two qualities that are essential for professionals in the workforce.”

The Princeton Review’s survey asked students at the 295 business schools about their school’s academics, student body, and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. In total, 22,000 students attending these schools reported their experiences on the Princeton Review’s 80 question survey.

Here are some of the comments from students from the School of Business Administration, home of the A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management, that were surveyed by Princeton Review:

  • “Challenging” classes, bolstered by the “very accessible” professors who “care very much about their students’ learning and understanding of the course material.”
  • “Wide diversity of electives,” which are all seminar size and designed to “encourage participative learning.”
  • “I love coming to a small school like UCR’s AGSM. You get real interaction with professors, and all of the students know each other, which allows for tighter bonds and networks.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book from 1 to 295. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten of the lists are based entirely or partly on The Princeton Review’s surveys of students attending the schools. A few lists, such as “Best Career Prospects,” use both student survey and institutional data. The list, “Toughest to Get Into,” is based solely on institutional data.

The School of Business Administration ranked sixth in the “Greatest Opportunity for Minority Students” category.
