The Princeton Review editors weighed more than 60 data points in making their selection of the 243 top schools. Criteria included data from surveys the company conducted in 2021-22 of administrators at schools offering on-campus MBA programs as well as surveys over the past three academic years from students enrolled in the programs. Topics covered included academic offerings, faculty, career services and campus culture.

“All of the business schools that made our list for 2023 deliver exceptional business education and programs, ” said Rob Franek , editor-in-chief at The Princeton Review. “We commend them for their excellent academics, and we recommend them highly to prospective MBA applicants.”

Students described the Alvarez on-campus MBA program as “developing rapidly in the UT system, one of the top business schools in the South” with a “high reputation” for top-notch “finance and marketing courses,” “generous scholarships” and “great professors.”
