GW SCHOOL OF BUSINESS RANKS AMONG TOP 10 BUSINESS SCHOOLS PROVIDING THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY FOR WOMEN IN
THE PRINCETON REVIEW
Rankings Based on Student Assessment of Resources for Female Students and Schools' Support of Female Culture, as well as Percentage of Female Faculty and Students
WASHINGTON -- The George Washington University School of Business was recently named among the Top 10 business schools to provide the greatest opportunity for women by The Princeton Review in its "Best 282 Business Schools" report of 2007.
"GW's top 10 ranking demonstrates the continued progress of our M.B.A. program," said Susan M. Phillips, dean and professor of finance of GW's School of Business. "We strive to provide equal opportunities to all of our students, and we're especially glad that women in our program are making big strides in comparison to other business programs around the country."
More than 18,000 students at top business schools provided information to The Princeton Review about academics, student life, and career opportunities at their school. Students filled out surveys from which the Review formulated its rankings. The rankings are based on the percentage of female students, the percentage of female faculty, and student assessment of resources for female students and the schools' support of female culture. The Review also examined schools' coursework offerings for female entrepreneurs and whether case-study materials for classes reflected women in business proportionately. Additionally, the Review analyzed the benefits of GW's location in our nation's capital, and how the Washington scene influences curriculum and faculty quality.
GW's School of Business prepares students for professional management careers. The depth and variety of its academic and professional programs, including five specialized master's programs, provide rich opportunities for students in the school's core bachelor of business administration, master of business administration, and doctoral programs. GW's undergraduate- and graduate-level international business programs rank among the world's best.
