Daniels College of Business ranks No. 4 in the nation
The Princeton Review® released its 2019 annual ranking lists of the best business schools, ranking the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver No. 4 for Best Green MBA.
“Addressing social, environmental and sustainability issues is a core priority across our programs at the Daniels College of Business,” says Daniels Dean E. LaBrent Chrite. “The Daniels vision is to pioneer business for the public good. Teaching our students about these critical topics and instilling ethical values is engrained in what we do, and we know it allows our students to succeed.”
In Daniels’ Denver MBA program, students tackle four core challenges, in tandem with rigorous, integrated learning modules that allow them to test and refine their skills in real business settings. As part of the program’s social good challenge, students work with a local nonprofit to hone their social responsibility skills. Yet, in every challenge—enterprise, corporate and global—the students are looking at sustainability concerns.
Known for its college rankings in dozens of categories based on students’ ratings of their colleges, the Princeton Review tallies its 19 categories of best business schools using data largely from student surveys.
“We salute these schools for the innovative and wide range of MBA programs they offer their students,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review editor-in-chief. “Our purpose is not to rank hundreds of b-schools hierarchically or to crown any single MBA program or school as ‘best’ overall. We compile multiple categories of ranking lists and combine them with detailed profiles of the schools to help applicants identify and successfully apply to the best MBA program for them.”
The Princeton Review’s on-campus MBA survey asked students at 252 business schools about their school’s academics, student body and campus life, as well as questions about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys that were used for this edition were conducted in the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years. To learn more about the Princeton Review methodology, visit their website.
