Rensselaer's Lally School of Management and Technology Featured in Princeton Review's “Best 296 Business Schools”

HARTFORD, CONN – Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Lally School of Management and Technology is an outstanding business school, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features the school in the recently-published 2009 edition of its “Best 296 Business Schools.”

To identify the best business programs, The Princeton Review surveyed 19,000 students attending the 296 business schools profiled in the publication. The publication does not rank the schools on a single hierarchical list from 1 to 296, or name one business school best overall, according to the editors.

In the profile on the Lally School, editors noted that the Lally School MBA program “combines technological innovation and a focus on entrepreneurship in a team-oriented curriculum that cuts across all business functions.” Students enrolled in the MBA program also appreciate being in an “entrepreneurship program friendly to those with technical backgrounds.”

“The Lally School is proud to be recognized among the best business schools in the nation,” said David Gautschi, Dean of the Lally School. “Our mantra is that technology creation and commercialization do not occur in an ivory tower, not on only one side of the market for capital; they happen in a competitive, increasingly global marketplace for ideas and for capital. Our students and faculty have a passion for taking ideas and turning them into real-world products – both in start-up ventures and in going concerns. This recognition demonstrates that the Lally School competes with the very best business schools in the world.”

“We select schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review Vice President of Publishing. “We are pleased to recommend the Lally School to readers of our book and users of our Web site as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA.”
