Leighton School Ranking
The Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics at Indiana University South Bend School is listed once again as an outstanding business school, according to the education services company, the Princeton Review. This is the eighth year that the school has been included in the annual publication, “The Best 296 Business Schools” (Random House / Princeton Review).
“This recognition demonstrates the high quality of the programs, faculty, and students at the Leighton School” said Rob Ducoffe, dean of the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics at IU South Bend.
“Being featured for the past eight years is very meaningful because inclusion is based on input provided by the group we value highly – our students,” said P.N. Saksena, associate dean for graduate programs and professor of accounting.
The Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is one of 280 in the U.S. and 16 international schools that are named. The listing is based on academic programs and a review of institutional data collected from each school. The Princeton Review also solicits the opinions of students who report on their experiences in an 80–question survey.
The Princeton Review’s survey asked 19,000 students at the 296 schools their opinions of their school’s academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. The student surveys analyzed for this edition were conducted during the 2013-14, 2012-13, and 2011-12 academic years.
“The Best 296 Business Schools” has two-page profiles of the schools. Each profile addresses academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions. The profiles also have ratings for academic experience, admissions selectivity, and career services.
In the profile of IU South Bend, the Leighton School is described as “a value provider”, “cost effective” and as having “great business school credentials”. Students said professors “know present and past students by name”, are “engaged,” and “have a sincere interest in working with students.” The administration was also praised “when we contact the Dean, he is very responsive”.
