The Princeton Review has announced its annual business school rankings after compiling data from over 20,000 students at 295 business schools, the majority of which are based in the US.

Based on the survey findings, the schools are placed into top 10 lists spread over eleven different categories ranging from ‘best career prospects’ to ‘greatest opportunity for minority students’.

These business school rankings are not intended to be hierarchical, but rather to facilitate the search for the right school among prospective MBAs looking to study in the US. The top 10 lists supplement the 2014 edition of The Princeton Review’s ‘The Best 295 Business Schools’ guidebook which has just gone on sale alongside its annual law school guidebook.

"Each school in our books offers outstanding academics: no single law or b-school is 'best' overall," said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher at The Princeton Review in a press release.

Stanford tops two Princeton Review categories

The survey carried out by The Princeton Review asked students about their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as their career plans to form its eleven categories

Out of these, only Stanford Graduate School of Business comes out top twice – leading the ‘best career prospects’, but also the ‘toughest to get into’ sections.

According to the survey, the school at which there was the ‘greatest opportunity for women’ is Simmons School of Management, whereas the ‘greatest opportunity for minority students’ is seen at Howard University.

In addition, those searching for ethical MBA careers should check out the ‘best green MBA’ at Yale and for an all-round ‘best campus environment’, you can look to Columbia Business School.  The full categorized business school rankings can be found here

To produce the data behind both the rankings and ‘The Best 295 Business Schools’ guidebook, student opinion was collated from as many of the accredited graduate business schools in the US as possible. The Princeton Review does say that it was also able to include some reputed and well-established international business schools.
