The UConn School of Business is among the top business schools in the country at which to earn an MBA, according to The Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of “The Best 294 Business Schools.” “We recommend UConn as one of the best to earn an MBA,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s senior VP-Publisher. “We chose the 294 schools in this book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools.
