      Georgia Southern University's College of Business Administration was recognized recently as one of the best business schools in the country by "The Princeton Review." It is the fourth year in a row Georgia Southern was included on the list.
      "It is an honor to be included on The Princeton Review's best business school list," said Ron Shiffler, dean of the College of Business Administration. "In the 2010 edition, the publishers of the Princeton Review feature information about our outstanding academic offerings, our faculty's dedication to students, and the flexibility of our on-line programs. We are very proud of our faculty and outstanding students who helped make this recognition possible."
      The Review names Georgia Southern's MBA program as one of the best in the country. The guide highlights the classes offered on the Statesboro campus, at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah and the on-line courses that make up the Georgia WebMBA program. Business schools are included on the Princeton Review list after an extensive research and surveying process.
      "We are pleased to recommend Georgia Southern University's College of Business Administration to readers as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president of publishing. "We chose the 301 business schools in this book based on our 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 the students attending the schools who rate and report on their campus experiences at their schools on our survey for the book."
       "Georgia Southern's MBA program provides outstanding advanced educational opportunities with the flexibility working professionals need as they take the next step towards advancing their career," said Melissa Holland, director of Georgia Southern's MBA programs. "Our MBA students told the publishers of the Princeton Review about their professors' willingness to work around their schedule and even providing students with their cell phone numbers in case they had questions in the evenings or on the weekends. Those are some of the reasons so many students choose Georgia Southern University for their MBA."
