Princeton Review of the Best 295 Business Schools

Barney School of BusinessThe University of Hartford’s Barney School of Business has been named one of the nation's most outstanding business schools, according to the education services company, The Princeton Review. The company features the Barney School in the new 2014 edition of its book, The Best 295 Business Schools (Random House / Princeton Review, October 8, 2013).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president/publisher, "We recommend the Barney School of Business as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools that rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book."

The Princeton Review editors describe the school as having great professors, staff that go out of their way to assist students, and a tremendous sense of community. Barney also provides great flexibility to accommodate the full-time workers seeking MBA and MSAT degrees. “For the working professional, this program is perfect. In and out of classes at convenient times leaves time to do other activities and keep a good work/school-life balance,” said one student.

Many student comments tout the strengths of the Barney faculty:
