Bloch School Receives National Recognition Princeton Review includes School in list of 282 Best Business Schools

The Henry W. Bloch School of Business and Public Administration is one of the best business schools in the country, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company selected the School for inclusion in the 2007 edition of its book, Best 282 Business Schools.

“Inclusion in The Princeton Review Best Business Schools publication is a tribute to the dedication of our faculty,” O. Homer Erekson, dean of the Bloch School, said. “Our faculty assure that our students have rigorous and contemporary classes which prepare them for leadership positions in their companies and organizations.”

The book, which hits stores in October, will include two-page profiles of each school with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. The book also has 11 rankings lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories from “Toughest to Get Into” to “Best Career Prospects.” The book does not rank the 282 schools overall.

The books ratings and rankings are based on institutional data from the schools and on The Princeton Review’s surveys of more than 18,000 students attending the schools profiled in the book. The survey asked students about themselves and their career plans, as well as their schools’ academics, student body and campus life.

“We are very pleased to feature the Bloch School in our book,” Robert Franek, vice president/publisher of The Princeton Review, said. “We highly commend it to readers of the book and users of our Web site as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA.”

The Bloch School is Kansas City’s only institution that is fully accredited in both business and public administration by prestigious, international accrediting bodies that set rigorous standards for their member institutions to maintain. In business, the Bloch School is accredited by AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International, which accredits only eight percent of the business schools in the world. In public administration, the Bloch School’s Cookingham Institute is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration.

Best 282 Business Schools is one of more than 200 Princeton Review books published by Random House. The line includes Princeton Review guides to the best law schools, medical schools, and colleges, plus guides to college and graduate school admission exams. The Princeton Review (www.princetonreview.com) is also known for its test-prep courses and other admission and K-12 education services. The company is not affiliated with Princeton University.
