RCOB: A Best Business School in 2009

Friday, October 31, 2008

The Princeton Review has selected the Richards College of Business as an outstanding business school for a third consecutive year and will include college in its “Best 296 Business Schools: 2009” publication. The national recognition is based on a survey regarding the college’s academic programs and student satisfaction, as well as the university’s student body and campus life.

The RCOB is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), a distinction achieved by fewer than 15 percent of business schools worldwide. The college is also one of approximately four percent of business schools in the world to hold separate AACSB accreditation for its accounting program.

The college is commended for its friendly students and good preparation for general management and operations positions.  Students say they enjoy UWG’s beautiful campus as well as the diversity among international students.

The ranking reflects a growing recognition that West Georgia is a comprehensive doctoral institution and a destination institution. The Princeton Review recognized UWG as a Best Southeastern College for a sixth consecutive year and as one of America’s Best Value Colleges for 2007 and 2008.
