AUM College of Business recognized by The Princeton Review

by Buffy Lockette | Aug 14, 2014

The Auburn Montgomery College of Business continues to distinguish itself as one of the best business programs in the nation. The Princeton Review has named the college a 2014 Best Business School based on the feedback of nearly 40,000 business students from across the U.S. The college was noted for its affordability and reputation for academic excellence.  

The news comes on the heels of another recent honor for the college – receiving reaccreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which places it among the top 1 percent of the world’s business schools to achieve accreditation of both its business and accounting programs.

"It is an honor to be recognized by the Princeton Review as a Best Business School, and an extraordinary accomplishment of our college,” said Rhea Ingram, dean of the college. “It speaks volumes to the dedication of our faculty, staff and students. We are committed to excellence, and are constantly noted for our reputation of excellence, faculty who bring in real-world experiences, and connections to the business community.”

Organized into the Departments of Accounting, Information Systems and Management, and Economics, Finance and Marketing, the college offers undergraduate and graduate degrees. Courses are offered online, nights and weekends. Bachelor’s degrees are available in accounting, economics, finance, general business, human resources management, information systems management, management, and marketing. The college also offers a Master of Business Administration, Executive MBA and Master of Science in Information Systems Management.
