More than 19,000 MBA graduates nationwide recently participated in a survey of how well various schools prepared them for the real world. The U.'s David Eccles School of Business and the BYU Marriott School of Business landed on different lists, but both scored highly.
BYU was accompanied by heavy-hitters such as Columbia, Cornell, New York and Yale universities and others, all making the Princeton Review's top 15 list of schools that best prepare students in finance. The U. was among the 15 best schools in the area of business operations, along with the Georgia Institute of Technology, California State University and Texas Christian University, among others.
"These are the great business schools of the country that everyone talks about," said Steven Thorley, finance department chairman at BYU. "It would be hard to find better company."
