Congratulations, Richards College of Business! According to the Princeton Review, the RCOB is one of the best of 300 schools students could attend to get an MBA. Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publishing, said the RCOB was chosen "based on our high opinion of their academic programs and offerings, as well as our review of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also strongly consider the candid opinions of students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book."
