The Frank G. Zarb School of Business is one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review, which features Zarb in the new 2014 edition of “The Best 295 Business Schools”.

“The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition” contains two-page profiles of each institution highlighting academics, student life and admissions criteria. The Princeton Review also solicits opinions from students, asking them to rate and review their experiences through an 80-question survey.

Students noted that Zarb professors bring deep professional experience to the classroom.

“Many of my professors are in prominent positions with local employers and government,” one student wrote. “This is very helpful in relating real-world experience as well as being a valuable networking tool.”

Said Dean Patrick Socci: “We are always looking for new ways to educate and engage our students because we understand that the best business programs combine classroom and experiential learning. It’s gratifying to hear that the work of our faculty, both in and out of the classroom, is making a difference for our students.”

The school profiles in “The Best 295 Business Schools” have rating scores in five categories that The Princeton Review tallies based on institutional data it collected during the 2012-13 academic year and/or its student survey for the book.  The ratings are scores on a scale of 60 to 99.  Rating categories are: academic experience, admissions selectivity, career, professors interesting, and professors accessible.

    Hofstra has always placed majority of its graduates on Wall St and thus the school has great alumni network in NYC.
    It may not be a top 50 school yet, but when it comes to getting a good placement in NYC its as good as it gets.

    I’m not surprised at all about this. The school has been great for years – that’s why I attended it in the 70′s. I was able to get a job at Morgan Guaranty through university placement services. At the job, I worked alongside Ivy leaguers on various projects. One of the people interviewing me for the job was a Hofstra alumnis – I found this out after working there for a year.

    Hofstra certainly deserves it! Great School
