To the Wake Forest Schools of Business Community:
The Princeton Review's 2nd annual "Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools," which names the top 15 graduate schools in six categories: Accounting, Finance, General Management, Global Management, Marketing, and Operations, has named the Wake Forest School of Business one of the 15 most highly rated graduate business schools in the Accounting category. Wake Forest received the highest evaluations from its students based on how well the students felt their classroom and campus experiences had prepared them for their careers.
For Wake Forest University, this accounting ranking means that MBA students believe their education has made them experts "in the gathering, interpretation and application of financial data," which will enable them to understand and speak authoritatively on the effects of business decisions on a company's bottom line.
The lists, created and compiled by the education services company The Princeton Review in partnership with Entrepreneur magazine, a leading publication for and about entrepreneurs, will be reported in the April 2010 issue of Entrepreneur. The lists are based on a national survey of 19,000 current business school students attending the 301 business schools profiled in the book Best 301 Business Schools: 2010 Edition (Random House/Princeton Review). The business schools appear in alphabetical order on the lists, and are not ranked 1 to 15. In addition to the magazine, the lists are at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges and www.PrincetonReview.com/studentopinionhonors.aspx.
Since 2006, Entrepreneur and The Princeton Review have also partnered in reporting annual ranking lists of the "Top Entrepreneurial Colleges and Business Schools" that identify 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate schools for their outstanding entrepreneurship programs. Wake Forest University was also included in this ranking as one of the top 25 in the nation for entrepreneurship. The complete lists, reported in Entrepreneur's October 2009 issue is available at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges.
The reputation for excellence in education across both our graduate and undergraduate programs continues to climb. I thank the faculty and staff for their efforts to produce world-class learning experiences, and I thank our students for their endorsement. We are committed to delivering a premier educational experience at Wake Forest - one which will lead to successful job searches, rewarding careers, and ultimately, leadership in the business community by our graduates. Congratulations on this latest ranking achievement!
