CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa is an outstanding business school for the eighth consecutive year, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education-services company features the school in the just-published 2014 edition of "The Best 295 Business Schools" (Random House/Princeton Review, published Oct. 8, 2013).

Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher, said, "We recommend UNI as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree. We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools. We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book."

Farzad Mousavi, dean of UNI's College of Business Administration, said, "It is gratifying to receive continued recognition from The Princeton Review, which is internationally respected for its independence and relies heavily on current students' opinions. What The Princeton Review finds so appealing -- high quality of instruction and strong student orientation -- defines the academic philosophy of the entire college."

"The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition" has two-page profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. In the profile on UNI, the Princeton Review editors say, "UNI is well known and their students are well received as potential employees."

One student told The Princeton Review that the University of Northern Iowa offers a "practical business curriculum than can be directly applied to the business world." Another said, "It is a highly interactive atmosphere with professors who want you to [learn]." Said another, "Administrative staff [is] wonderful here; they go above and beyond limits to help you with any kind of issue."
