The University of Michigan-Flint School of Management (SOM) is an outstanding business school according to the education services company The Princeton Review.
The School of Management is in the new 2013 edition of its annual guidebook, "The Best 296 Business Schools." This latest recognition comes less than a month after SOM was named one of the Best Undergraduate Business Programs in the Midwest by U.S. News' "Best Colleges 2013."
"We consider UM-Flint's School of Management one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn an MBA," according to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher. "We selected the schools we profile in this book—280 of which are in the U.S.A. and 16 are international—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 who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book."
The Princeton Review's survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were conducted during the 2009-2012 academic years.
"We are very pleased to have been recognized by Princeton Review in their 2013 annual guide book of Best Business Schools. This recognition succinctly reflects the quality of our academic programs. It could not have been achieved without the dedication and hard work of our faculty and staff," noted Vahid Lotfi, senior vice provost and acting dean of SOM. The recognition is also partly based upon feedback from our students, many of whom face complex lives. We are truly proud of them."
Some of the comments from students attending SOM in the profile include: "If you are looking for a 'prestigious top school for management' that offers a great deal of 'flexibility,' then consider the University of Michigan-Flint School of Management. The MBA program is 'very structured and organized.'"
