    The Princeton Review listed The University of Scranton’s Kania School of Management among the nation’s “Best Business Schools” for 2019, marking the 14th consecutive year that Scranton has been included in the listing of just 252 of the nation’s most elite business colleges. Scranton was included among the list of “Best On-Campus MBA Programs,” which was published online in November.

    The listing of business programs is compiled from an analysis of institutional data and survey data from students attending the business schools. The data incorporates career outcomes, academic rigor, admissions selectivity and other factors. The University received high marks for professor accessibility and interest. In addition to praising Jesuit ideals imbedded in the curriculum, students quoted in Scranton’s profile section said the business school provided “an environment which is collaborative, values different ideas, encourages discussion, and lets the students think about phenomena in a very creative manner.”

    The University’s Kania School of Management is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which is widely considered the standard of excellence for business schools. Less than five percent of business colleges worldwide hold AACSB accreditation.

    The Princeton Review also listed Scranton in its 2019 edition of “The Best 384 Colleges,” ranking Scranton among the nation’s “Best Science Labs” (No. 16) and “Best Campus Food” (No. 15). The Princeton Review also included Scranton in its “Guide to 399 Green Colleges.”

    In other national rankings, U.S. News and World Report included Scranton in a national ranking of the “Best Undergraduate Business Programs” (No. 199) and ranked Scranton’s entrepreneurship program at No. 31, its finance program at No. 36 and its accounting program at No. 37 in the country. In the overall ranking for colleges, U.S. News ranked Scranton No. 6 among the “Best Regional Universities in the North,” marking the 25th consecutive year that Scranton ranked in the top 10 of its category.
