Entrepreneur Magazine's April Issue Recommends Business Schools Best for 'Green Business' Education

List Based on Princeton Review Survey of 325 B-Schools

IRVINE, Calif., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneur, the nation's leading publication for and about entrepreneurs, in its April issue (available on newsstands March 22) recommends 16 graduate schools of business as top-notch institutions for MBA students to get an education in "Green Business" fields. For this project, Entrepreneur teamed up with The Princeton Review, the education services company widely known for its test prep programs and "best" colleges and graduate schools lists.

The Princeton Review selected the 16 b-schools featured in the Entrepreneur article, titled "A Sustainable Degree," based on the Company's survey of administrators at 325 graduate schools of business in 2009-2010 and of students attending the schools. Administrators were surveyed on their school's academics, curricula, campus policies and student services related to sustainability, social responsibility and the environment. Students were polled on how well they felt their MBA programs were educating them for careers in "Green Business" fields.

The Entrepreneur feature list of b-schools best for "Green Business" education is also posted at http://www.entrepreneur.com/greenbizdegrees and www.princetonreview.com/business-schools-green.aspx where users will find information on the schools' academic programs, "green curricula" and admission requirements.

The schools named to the list (which is in alphabetical order and not a ranking list) are:

  • Babson College F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business (Babson Park / Wellesley, MA)
  • Bentley Univ. McCallum Graduate School of Business (Waltham, MA)
  • Brandeis Univ. International Business School (Waltham, MA)
  • Claremont Graduate Univ. Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management (Claremont, CA)
  • Clark Univ. Graduate School of Management (Worcester, MA)
  • Columbia Univ. Columbia Business School (New York, NY)
  • Duke Univ. The Fuqua School of Business (Durham, NC)
  • McGill Univ. Desautels Faculty of Management (Montreal, Quebec, Canada)
  • New York Univ. Leonard N. Stern School of Business (New York, NY)
  • Portland State Univ. School of Business Administration (Portland, OR)
  • Stanford Univ. Graduate School of Business (Stanford, CA)
  • Univ. of Michigan Stephen M. Ross School of Business (Ann Arbor, MI)
  • Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Kenan-Flagler Business School (Chapel Hill, NC)
  • Univ. of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business (Notre Dame, IN)
  • Univ. of Virginia Darden Graduate School of Business (Charlottesville, VA)
  • Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison Wisconsin School of Business (Madison, WI)

The Princeton Review chose the schools based on criteria that covered four key areas: the amount of research the school conducts related to sustainability, the availability of courses in sustainability, the percent of faculty teaching such courses, and the school's career services for students interested in green business/social responsibility employment.

"Ground-floor trends for entrepreneurs in green business are approaching fever pitch, with big opportunities in everything from clean tech to sustainability management, ecological restoration and more," says Amy Cosper, VP and editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. "With high gas prices and recent oil slicks on our minds, it's not hard to guess why. The school programs we've listed may offer entrepreneurs the launch tools necessary to be able to fuse their passions for green to some of these emerging business opportunities."

Says Robert Franek, Princeton Review's Senior VP, Publishing, "These schools deserve kudos for their exceptional commitment to environmental and social responsibility issues both in their institutional policies and their academic offerings. We salute them for the many and varied ways they have 'gone green' from offering a Masters in Environmental Management to building facilities with LEED Platinum certification to mentoring student entrepreneurship projects supporting the development of clean tech products."

Entrepreneur and The Princeton Review have also partnered in reporting annual lists of the "Top Schools for Entrepreneurship Programs" since 2006. Researched and compiled by The Princeton Review, the lists salute the 25 undergraduate and 25 graduate schools best for entrepreneurship education. The current lists, reported in Entrepreneur's October 2010 issue, are at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges.

The Princeton Review also reports school ranking lists in its annual Best 300 Business Schools and Best 172 Law Schools books in 11 categories and in its annual Best 373 Colleges book in 62 categories. The Company also annually tallies "Green Rating" scores for more than 700 colleges and publishes an annual free downloadable book, Guide to Green Colleges.
