Miami Shores- Fla. - Barry University’s Andreas School of Business is listed as one of the top ranking business schools in the nation, according to the Princeton Review’s The Best 301 Business Schools: 2010 Edition.
The publication lists Barry’s Andreas School of Business as No. 3 in affording the greatest opportunity for minority students – behind Howard University in D.C. and University of Houston- Victoria School of Business Administration.
Among the student survey answers, were praises about Barry’s ability to maintain a socially responsible world view and the many specialized programs, usually only offered at larger universities. Aside from being surveyed as having “friendly students” the book also cites the school’s ability to offer dual degrees in nursing, podiatry and sports management as a strong driving force behind students’ decision to come to Barry.
The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 301, or name one business school best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business schools in various categories. Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review's surveys of 19,000 students attending the 301 business schools profiled in the book. One list, ‘Toughest to Get Into,’ is based solely on institutional data
The study is intended to be a useful guide for potential students, according to Robert Franek of the Princeton Review: "We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools.”
Federally designated a Hispanic Serving Institution in 2006, Barry has consistently been recognized for its commitment to diversity and the number of degrees it grants to minority students. That same year, Barry was named “America’s Top Diversity Colleges/Universities” by Minority Access, a nonprofit educational organization that helps individuals and institutions to diversify campuses and work sites.
