The College of Business at Colorado State University moved up three places on this year’s The Princeton Review’s list of “Best Administered” business schools, to third in the nation. “It is an honor for our entire program’s administrative team to be recognized in this way,” said John Weiss, director of MBA programs. “We think it is as a result of having a group of dedicated people who do their very best to make sure that our students are able to navigate through our programs from start to finish.” The Princeton Review, a New-York-based educational services company, features Colorado State in the 2015 edition of "The Best 296 Colleges. Inclusion on the list is based on surveys of more than 21,600 students at 296 business schools, in addition to data from school administrators. The Best Administered ranking is the result of student answers regarding how smoothly the college is run and the ease with which students can get into required and popular courses. Online Professional MBA Weiss is also the program director for CSU’s Online Professional MBA, a graduate focused program that takes a unique approach to online education. The Review said CSU’s OPMBA offers a solid mid-tier program for an “an amazing value” at a well-respected institution that is ideal for working students looking to progress or diversify their careers. Students said they were impressed by the multiple program options for career advancement, including Professional and Early Career, and eight-week classes, scheduling flexibility, online courses, and course layout. According to the Review, surveys also highlighted the diversity of students in any given class (both in-person and online) and faculty that makes sure “there is a lot of insight as to how topics are handled in specific industries.” Other recent CSU College of Business accomplishments include:
