Recently, the LaPenta School of Business was named by the Princeton Review as one of the 2023 Best Business Schools for its on-campus MBA program. The university offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs, including both on-campus and online MBA programs. The LaPenta School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, which is only awarded to 5% of business schools worldwide. 

Data is collected from surveys from administrators at 243 business schools in 2021-22 and more than 20,300 students enrolled at the schools’ on-campus MBA programs during the 2021-22 or 2019-20 school years to determine what institutions make The Princeton Review’s 2023 lists. The student survey consists of 90 questions, where students are asked to rate and/or report on their academics, student body, campus life and career plans. The administrator survey is 300 questions, asking administrators to report institutional data on their MBA program’s academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms, career services and other topics.  

The Princeton Review cities that students reported that the university creates a “nurturing learning environment.” Additionally, The Princeton Review commends students for being engaged and self-motivated.
