Welch College of Business Named Among 'Best 300 Business Schools: 2011' by Princeton Review

News Story: October 1, 2010

The John F. Welch College of Business at Sacred Heart University is an outstanding business school, according to the Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2011 edition of its book, The Best 300 Business Schools (Random House/Princeton Review, $22.99).

The Princeton Review recommended the College as one of the best institutions students could attend to earn an MBA, based on its academic programs and offerings, as well as a review of institutional data collected from the school and numerous candid interviews with students.

SHU has been providing business education since 1965, just two years after its founding, and the MBA program was the University’s first graduate program. In January 2006, the school was named for GE’s legendary former chairman and CEO, Jack Welch. Among an elite membership of fewer than five percent of business schools worldwide, the College is accredited by AACSB International, the premier global accrediting body for schools of business.

The College is distinguished by the Welch Experience, a unique comprehensive approach to undergraduate business education that builds on an already existing curriculum of excellence.  Starting in the student’s first year, Sacred Heart faculty, administration and alumni work to educate the students inside and outside of the classroom and inside and outside of the country. The Welch Experience comprises an integrated business education in a deliberate sequence that builds on students’ knowledge and helps them progress through the program.

Students surveyed for the Welch College of Business profile in the Princeton Review guidebook cite the University’s “great reputation” and its “amazing” undergraduate program in business.  They cited the school’s “cutting edge” classes, solid preparation in general management, and teamwork. Some 200 MBA students are pursuing concentrations in accounting, management and finance. The College’s unique MBA program in Luxembourg attracts an international student body, with graduates from 30 countries.
