Princeton Review Names Willamette University MBA Among Top 15 Schools in Marketing

Willamette University's Atkinson Graduate School of Management was named a "Top 15 Program for Preparing Students for Marketing" by the Princeton Review. The ranking, based on a survey of 19,000 students worldwide, appears in the latest issue of Entrepreneur magazine and in Princeton Review's Best Business Schools publication.

Willamette is one of only three west coast universities on the marketing list. The other two are the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Oregon.

"This designation is especially meaningful because it comes from student satisfaction surveys," said Debra Ringold, dean and JELD-WEN Professor of Free Enterprise. "It speaks to the quality of our faculty, the strength of our marketing curriculum and the career opportunities available to students upon graduation."

Willamette and the University of Oregon are the only two schools from the Northwest to make any of the "Top Programs" lists. The Willamette MBA, which holds classes in Salem and Portland, is one of only two programs worldwide to be dually accredited for business administration and public administration. Willamette also offers a combined BA/MBA program that allows students to complete both degrees in just five years. Learn more at www.willamette.edu/agsm/full-time/formats/ba_mba.htm.
