Top Business School for 2017!

For the 10th straight year, the College of Business ranks among the best U.S. business schools according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles East Carolina University in its 2017 annual ranking of business schools, “The Best 294 Business Schools,” which was released on Oct. 6.

As part of its rating in the latest guide, the College of Business is featured in a two-page profile highlighting academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions information. The profile states, “East Carolina is a medium-sized public school, but it seems like a smaller, more expensive one.” It also said the MBA program “provides students with lots of individual attention and allows them to tailor the program to their needs.”

Business professors at East Carolina also get high marks in the profile, which notes, “The strong and challenging faculty members are genuinely concerned with their students’ success in the program, and really push them to get better. They are accessible outside of class, and students can build real relationships with them.”

Dr. Stan Eakins, dean of the College of Business, said, “For a full decade, the College of Business has earned recognition as one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, and we are proud of our achievements. We graduate more than 1,000 business students each year, and 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.”

The Princeton Review compiled its information based on surveys of 25,000 students attending the 294 business schools included in the book. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on various topics and report on their experiences. For more information, visit
