Rankings based on survey of 16,000 students


The Princeton ReviewLOS ANGELES — UCLA Anderson School of Management is featured as one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools in The Princeton Review’s new 2006 edition of its “Best 237 Business Schools.”  UCLA Anderson ranked in the top ten in several survey categories including #2 in “Best Campus Environment,” and #4 in “Best Overall Academic Experience.”
 
Lists of the top ten schools in 11 categories are based institutional data from the schools and on surveys of 16,000 students attending the 237 schools profiled in the book.  The survey asked students over 50 questions about themselves, their career plans, and their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.  Conducted during the 2004-05 and 2003-04 academic years, the surveys were done primarily online. 

UCLA Anderson is Featured:

  • 2nd in “Best Campus Environment”
  • 4th in “Best Overall Academic Experience”
  • 8th in “Best Career Prospects”
  • 8th in “Toughest to Get Into"
  • 10th in “Greatest Opportunity for Women”

The two-page profiles in “Best 237 Business Schools” have sections on the school’s academics, student life, admissions and career/placement programs.  The profiles also have ratings on the school's academics, admissions selectivity and career programs. 

Robert Franek, Princeton Review VP-Publishing states, “Every school we profile in this book offers a terrific MBA education, yet each one is distinctive in its academic programs, school offerings and campus culture. We don't name—and don't think it's useful to name—one best business school overall.  The key question for applicants is 'What is the best b-school for me?'   To help them decide this, we survey students attending the schools and report what they say about their experiences at them.   Our profiles and ranking lists of top schools in various categories are based on straight-from-the-campus data we collected from school administrators and students at the schools.”
