Bellarmine University’s W. Fielding Rubel School of Business
is one of the nation's top business schools, according to The Princeton Review
. The education services company has once again featured the school in the annual edition of its book, "The Best 295 Business Schools,” for 2014.
The Princeton Review surveys business school students about their school's academics, student body and campus life, as well as about themselves and their career plans. Some of the Bellarmine students' comments published by The Princeton Review:
- "The cohort design and grouping throughout the weekend program has increased my team-building skills."
- The curriculum places a strong "emphasis on improving student’s writing, speaking, presentation, and teamwork skills."
- "One of Bellarmine’s advantages is that a majority of its professors have great career experience, and some are still working in the Louisville area."
- Professors "know what is going on in the job market today and how it will affect us when we leave."

The school profiles in "The Best 295 Business Schools" have rating scores in several categories that The Princeton Review tallies based on institutional data it collected during the 2012-13 academic year, along with its student survey. Rating categories include academic experience, admissions selectivity and professor quality.
"The Rubel School of Business continues to be recognized as one of the nation's best due to its strong focus on providing students relevant, real world skills required for success in the business world," said Dr. Dan Bauer, dean of the Rubel School.
The Rubel School of Business offers undergraduate and graduate students a unique educational experience: a broad-based liberal arts education with top-notch business preparation. This difference is viewed favorably by employers, who praise Bellarmine graduates for their writing and critical thinking skills. The master’s program includes MBA tracks for executive, weeknight and weekend students.
The school is accredited by the AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), which places it among the elite business schools in the nation.
