The Princeton Review Recognizes NKU as

Best Business School


October 31, 2019— Northern Kentucky University’s Haile/US Bank College of Business continues to be nationally recognized as one of the best business schools, according to The Princeton Review. 

The Princeton Review compiled its Top On-Campus MBA Ranking list through institutional and student data about career outcomes, admissions and academic. Only 252 business schools were ranked, positioning NKU as a top-tier institution.

“Its location from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio and affordable overall cost relative to other AACSB-accredited schools in the area draws enthusiastic students. While class times are convenient, students say that NKU’s greatest strength is the course work itself,” stated The Princeton Review. “Students love that NKU allows specialization of the MBA. Overall, students find NKU to be a place where the student is the top priority.”

NKU also received high remarks for its small class sizes, rigorous curriculum and its passionate and accessible faculty.

“The Princeton Review’s ranking demonstrates our track record of student success, acclaimed faculty and commitment to developing tomorrow’s business leaders,” said Haile/US Bank College of Business Dean Hassan HassabElnaby. “Not many institutions are able to show the distinctive education available for their students, and at NKU we continue to.”

NKU revamped its Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in 2017. The improved program is designed for working professionals to enhance their careers by utilizing new business topics in a fast-paced, customizable way.

Along with the Best On-Campus MBA ranking, Princeton Review highlighted the College of Business on its Best Business Schools: Southeast list. In August, the MBA program was listed sixth in the nation for both best online MBA program and best no-GMAT online MBA program by College Consensus.
