The College of Business Administration at the University of Missouri–St. Louis has been ranked among the nation’s best business schools by The Princeton Review.

The college is featured in the 2011 edition of the annual guidebook “The Best 300 Business Schools,” released today.

UMSL’s College of Business Administration is one of the St. Louis area’s leading providers of business education with bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and doctorates available in various areas of study.

“We are proud to be included in the top 300 again this year. This validates our continuing drive to excellence,” said Keith Womer, dean of the college. “Our faculty and students are outstanding, and I invite potential students and employers to come visit our campus and see why our college is the premier supplier of business graduates to the St Louis region.”

Publishers of the guidebook surveyed students at the college. Students described UMSL’s programs as “a good reputation in the St. Louis area for providing a good, quality business education,” they credited the professors as “well-organized” and “up-to-date on trends and technology.”

Princeton researchers found the average starting salary for UMSL business graduates to be $48,067, and the highest number of them are employed in the finance field.

The Princeton Review is a New York-based company known for its test preparation courses, education services and college and graduate school admission services. The “Best 300 Business Schools” is published by Random House.
