M.B.A. Program's Global Management Emphasis Cited by Princeton Review

The Princeton Review has recognized Old Dominion University's M.B.A. program among the top 15 in the nation for its global management emphasis.

In its "Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools" listing, the Princeton Review cited the top graduate business schools, as rated by some 19,000 students who evaluated their program's preparation in specific categories. The listings included the top 15 schools in each of six different emphasis areas, including global management, accounting, finance, general management, marketing and operations.

"This recognition is affirmation of our emphasis on a global perspective in all our programs," said Nancy A. Bagranoff, dean of ODU's College of Business and Public Administration. "With one of the most diverse campuses in Virginia and a thriving international community, Old Dominion is uniquely positioned to offer our students the academics and experience that gives them an advantage in the global marketplace."

Along with Old Dominion, the other schools noted in the global management category include Harvard, American, Georgetown, Brandeis, Florida International, Pepperdine, Northern Arizona and Pacific Lutheran universities, INSEAD European Institute of Business Administration, Miami University of Ohio, Monterey Institute of International Studies, University of Texas, Thunderbird School of Global Management and University of South Carolina.

"Having Old Dominion's MBA program recognized as one of the top 15 in global management by Entrepreneur Magazine and The Princeton Review places us in excellent company," said MBA program director Bruce Rubin. "This honor recognizes the efforts of our faculty and program to fostering an outstanding educational experience for our students. The fact that this honor was determined by a student opinion survey is particularly gratifying."

The lists appear in the April 2010 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, a national publication for and about entrepreneurs.

In addition to appearing in Entrepreneur Magazine, the lists are posted at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges and www.PrincetonReview.com/studentopinionhonors.aspx.
