Houston, TX November 7, 2013 – Jesse H. Jones School of Business is one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to education services company, The Princeton Review (www.princetonreview.com). The company features the JHJ School in the new 2014 edition of its book, "The Best 295 Business Schools” (Random House / Princeton Review, October 8, 2013, $22.99).

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher, "We recommend the JHJ School as one of the best schools a student could attend to earn a business school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools that rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question student survey for the book." The Princeton Review's survey asks business school students about their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The Princeton Review analyzed and tallied its lists based on a survey of 20,300 students attending the 295 business schools at what we consider the best AACSB-accredited business schools in the U.S.A. as well as several AACSB-accredited business schools abroad.  

“We are extremely proud of this recognition from the Princeton Review and of the progress our faculty and are making in our education and learning collaborative that prepares students lead in a global economy”, stated Ronald A. Johnson, Dean of the JHJ School. “Our goal is to develop independent thinkers who are prepared to make a positive, meaningful, and lasting difference in our community and beyond.”


"The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions. In the profile on the JHJ School, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as: “a school with solid preparation in Finance, General management, Operations, and Entrepreneurial studies.   Among the students attending the JHJ School who were surveyed by The Princeton Review shared a common sentiment and chose to attend TSU because of the school’s visionary and awesome professors. Of these luminaries, students say,

“They are highly competitive and knowledgeable about their professions,” and students appreciate the “quality of their experience and expertise.” Also, as one student points out, the professors show a distinct “ability to steer students’ creativity and innovation.”
