The International Business School (IBS) was named one of the top 15 graduate business schools for both finance and global management in Princeton Review’s Student Opinion Honors list. This is the second year that IBS has made the list, which appears in the April issue of Entrepreneur Magazine.

The list names 80 schools in six categories. IBS’ ranking puts with schools like Georgetown University, Harvard Business School in the global management category. For finance, Brandeis was ranked among Columbia Business School, New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business, and Yale School of Management. The top 15 schools in each category were not ranked by number but were placed alphabetically.

“It is remarkable that our School has gained such a reputation among thousands of business students on such a consistent basis,” Dean of IBS Bruce Magid said. “To recognize IBS for the second year in a row in the areas of finance and global management speaks to our academic program being both rigorous and relevant to these challenging economic times.”

The Princeton Review compiled the list by polling 19,000 graduate business students in what it considered to be the best 301 business schools. The students rated their school on a five point scale on how well their master’s in business administration programs prepared them to suceed in six areas: Accounting, Finance, General Management, Global Management, Marketing and Operations.
