For the eighth straight year, East Carolina University’s College of Business ranks among the best in the nation by The Princeton Review.

The education services company features ECU in the 2015 edition of “The Best 296 Business Schools.”
The Princeton Review has ranked ECU's business school among the top in the nation for the eighth consecutive year.

“The College of Business is proud to be honored once again as one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools,” said Dr. Stan Eakins, dean of the College of Business. “Through all that we do, we strive to prepare and challenge our students with the necessary skills to think, act and lead in today's business world.”

In the guide, ECU’s College of Business is featured in a two-page profile highlighting academics, career and placement, student life and admissions information. The profile states that “ECU has an intimate feel...Professors know students’ names, and the campus has a friendly atmosphere.” The MBA program “provides students with lots of individual attention and allows them to tailor the program to their needs.”

The Princeton Review compiled the information based on its 80-question survey asking 21,600 students to rate their schools on several topics and report on their experiences. Some school-reported data also was used. Lists and other data are available at http://www.princetonreview.com/business-school-rankings.aspx.
