Cameron School of Business Again Makes List of Best Business Schools

Princetone Review The University of North Carolina Wilmington has once again been recognized for its excellence in graduate business programs. The Cameron School of Business is profiled in The Best 295 Business Schools: 2016 Edition, published by The Princeton Review. This marks the ninth consecutive year the organization has included the university in its rankings of top business schools.

“Our strong academic programs, the real-world experiences we offer our students, our executive mentoring program and our commitment to meeting the needs of current and future businesses have helped us achieve recognition year after year,” CSB Dean Robert Burrus said.

With more than 200 graduate students, CSB provides several educational paths, including a Professional Master of Business Administration program that offers classes one night a week. The remaining coursework is online, allowing working professionals the flexibility needed to pursue an advanced degree. Among other assets, the editors noted as a key strength knowledgeable faculty who bring a wide range of practical business experience.

After collecting data and a performing a survey of 22,000 students, the editors chose 295 schools to feature. The book's two-page school profiles have sections on academics, student life, admissions information and graduates' employment data. The CSB profile includes statements from students regarding the expertise and diverse specialties of the faculty, as well as programs that provide hands-on experience. Students agreed that “the M.B.A. program is well-designed and well-run” and “the caliber of professors and course material has exceeded my expectations.”
