For the ninth year in a row, the Princeton Review has ranked Brandeis International Business School (IBS) among the 294 best business schools in North America. The Princeton Review relies on more than 25,000 students at the schools it surveys to determine its rankings.

The MBA program at Brandeis IBS was acknowledged for strong achievements in several categories, including especially high ratings for the quality of professors. Students also remarked on the faculty’s investment in career success, noting that their professors were “friendly, extremely smart and concerned that we graduate with a great job.” 

The school’s global focus took center stage in this year’s placement among top business schools. One student praised the MBA program for its “truly global platform for professionals who seek advancement in international business” and “terrific exposure to other cultures.” Other MBA students described their peers as being open to new experiences, cooperative and collaborative – factors that led one contributor to describe the environment as “encouraging as opposed to competitive.”

The Princeton Review recognition closely follows other acknowledgments for the Brandeis IBS MBA program, which was ranked for the first time this year by Expansion and America Economia magazines, the latter of which recognized the program for its strong network in Latin America. 

The program has been restructured over the past academic year, and curricular changes will be implemented in the fall of 2017. MBA students may focus their studies within one of four industry-aligned concentrations in marketing, finance, data analytics or real estate – with consulting field projects and industry treks to continue their exposure to real-world clients and business scenarios. 

The Brandeis IBS Master of Arts in International Economics and Finance (MA) – Lemberg Program and Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program are also ranked by top publications and organizations, including the Financial Times
