The University of Houston-Victoria has been commended once again for having an outstanding business school.
For the seventh consecutive year, the Princeton Review has featured UHV's School of Business Administration in its annual guidebook, "The Best 296 Business Schools."
The survey asked 19,000 students at the schools their opinions of their school's academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.
Students stated that the flexibility in course offerings and classroom locations is a huge draw.
Student feedback is important because it allows UHV to adjust offerings to meet demand, said dean of the UHV School of Business Administration, Farhang Niroomand.
"We continue to modify and improve our programs and services to ensure that our MBA graduates are successful in their business careers," Niroomand said.
"The Best 296 Business Schools" has two-page profiles of the institutions - 280 of which are located in the U.S. and 16 internationally.
In UHV's profile, the Princeton Review editors described the various course delivery and enrollment options available to students.
Among the rating scores, The Princeton Review gives high marks to UHV's faculty with a score of 81 for interesting professors and a 91 for professor accessibility.
These ratings are on a scale of 100.
The School of Business Administration was listed No. 2 among the 10 institutions offering the greatest opportunities for minority students.
The school's underrepresented minority population is 75 percent, while 91 percent of the faculty members are underrepresented minorities.
"The diversity of the students, as well as the faculty, contributes to the global perspective with which our graduates emerge," Niroomand said.
