For immediate release…
Wednesday – June 4, 2014

The Northern Kentucky University Haile/US Bank College of Business is again one of the nation's most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review.

“We again recommend Northern Kentucky University as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior VP-publisher. “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 who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book."

The survey used to compile the 2014 edition of The Princeton Review's “The Best 295 Business Schools” asks business school students about their school's academics, student body, and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.

“It’s an honor to be included again in Princeton Review’s best business schools,” said Dr. Rick Kolbe, dean of the NKU Haile/US Bank College of Business. “We have an excellent faculty committed to the students and to providing a solid foundation in business principles.”

The book profiles schools with write-ups on their academics, student life, and admissions. In the profile on the Haile/US Bank College of Business, the Princeton Review editors reported, “Overall, students find NKU to be a place where ‘The student is the top priority.’” Students also say that NKU’s greatest strength is the course work itself. “NKU is very challenging and very strict with academics,” the report concluded.

The Princeton Review ( has helped students achieve their higher education goals for 30 years through college and graduate school test preparation, private tutoring, and more than 150 print and digital publications. The organization provides students and their parents with the resources to research, apply to, prepare for, and learn how to pay for higher education. The company also partners with schools and guidance counselors worldwide to assist in college readiness, test preparation, and career planning services.
