Washburn University Top Business School

The Washburn University School of Business has been named one of the best business schools in the nation by the Princeton Review. Washburn is included in the 2008 Review's "Best 290 Business Schools," which will be published in October.

It's the first time the Washburn School of Business has been featured in the guidebook, which has two-page profiles of the schools and write-ups on academics, student life and admissions. It also rates academics, selectivity and career placement services.

The evaluations of the top schools does not rank them 1-290 but has 11 ranking lists done after interviewing some 19,000 students attending the schools. It asks students about themselves and their career plans, as well as what their school offers in academics, student body and campus life.

Washburn began offering business degree programs in 1946 and today has more than 6,000 business alumni, according to University releases. The School of Business was founded in 1973 and now has 28 full time faculty, 700 undergrads and 100 students enrolled in the MBA program.
