Marketing Concentration in Crosby MBA Program Ranked among Top 15 in Nation

 The Princeton Review included the Crosby MBA Program at the University of Missouri's Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business in its latest national rankings. The marketing concentration earned a top-15 ranking in the "Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools."

The list is compiled from a survey of students at 296 business schools. Students were asked to rate their program in accounting, finance, general management, global management, marketing, and operations. The Princeton Review tallied the "Student Opinion Honors" lists based on students' assessments of how well they felt their graduate courses in each of the six areas had prepared them to succeed.

"The Trulaske College of Business is very pleased that our students see value in the quality education our faculty and staff work hard to provide," Joe Stephens, director of the Crosby MBA Program said. "This recognition of the marketing area is more evidence that our MBA program is relevant and valuable to today's students."

The survey generated input from 19,000 MBA students attending the schools profiled in The Princeton Review's Best 296 Business Schools: 2009 Edition. The "Student Opinion Honors" results are published in the April 2009 issue of Entrepreneur magazine. The business schools are listed in alphabetical order and are not ranked 1 to 15. Other institutions on the list in the marketing category include Duke, Indiana, and Northwestern universities. For a full list, visit www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges.
