    Eberhardt, McGeorge Featured in Princeton Review’s 2012 “Best Schools” Guides

    by Patrick GiblinOct 20, 2011

    The Eberhardt School of Business and the Pacific McGeorge School of Law were both listed as among the best business and law schools in the country by the Princeton Review this month. The education services company features Eberhardt and its full-time MBA program in the new 2012 edition of its book, "The Best 294 Business Schools." Pacific McGeorge was listed in the 2012 edition of the "Top 167 Law Schools."

    Both schools were selected based on surveys of current and former students, said Robert Franek, the Princeton Review Senior VP-Publisher.  The 80-question survey asked students about themselves, their career plans, and their schools' academics, student body and campus life.

    "Pacific offers quality programs, small class sizes and dedicated faculty, and I think that was reflected in the students' answers on the survey," said Provost Maria Pallavicini. "While we know that students must find educational programs that best fit their personal needs, it's gratifying to know that so many students consider our MBA and law programs to be among the best in the nation."

    According to the business school guide, Eberhardt students praised the MBA program for its dedication to a student-centered education, faculty engagement, and solid preparation in presentation skills and entrepreneurial studies.

    "Our students appreciate and recognize the instructional quality and personalized experience they receive in our MBA program," said Lewis R. Gale, dean of the Business School. "As an MBA program designed for students from any undergraduate degree field, we are pleased to receive public recognition of our high-caliber program."

    In the law school guide, students praised Pacific McGeorge for its small size, dedicated faculty and the fact that it is located on its own campus in Sacramento, which helps students focus exclusively on their law studies.

    "We have long said that the Pacific McGeorge campus is a hidden jewel in the Sacramento area, and we know that our students see it the same way," said Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker, dean of the Law School. "By having an inclusive environment, we can give our students the attention and instruction they need to graduate as world-class attorneys."
