The Princeton Review has chosen the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond for its newest guidebook, “The Best 294 Business Schools (2012 Edition).”

Princeton Review selected the 294 business schools based on 19,000 student surveys that rated their schools’ job placement, potential for real-world business experience, professors and other factors.

The book’s editors wrote that Richmond “is home to numerous headquarters of companies, and their executives have great relationships with the university.” Students surveyed said that the Robins School also maintains a “good business network in Mid-Atlantic and northeast regions.”

Robins School students praised the school for having an MBA program support staff that “has done a great job increasing assistance to students to improve skills, such as interviewing.”  One student noted, “I’ve had a lot of employer interest for internships and most of my leads have come from the efforts” of the assistant director of the MBA program.

The relationship between the business school’s faculty and students was prominent in student’s comments on the school. “In the classroom, professors are excellent facilitators, ably ‘engaging students in an ongoing conversation instead of just lecturing to a captive audience.’” Students are given hands-on experience in the form of projects that “involve interaction with local corporations and nonprofits,” which also gives the school “visibility with top regional employers.”

The Robins School of Business was founded in 1949 and is consistently ranked among the top 20 in the country by Bloomberg Businessweek.
