William Paterson University’s Cotsakos College of Business Included in Princeton Review’s 2018 Best Business Schools for 10th Straight Year

William Paterson University’s Cotsakos College of Business is once again included in the Princeton Review’s annual guide to graduate business schools. The 2018 edition, The Best 267 Business Schools, marks the 10th straight year the College has been featured in the book, which is well known for its rankings based on how students rate their schools.

Within the past year, the University’s Cotsakos College of Business introduced a completely redesigned MBA program that offers students more flexibility and a curriculum based on business needs. 

“We have more than doubled our enrollment in William Paterson’s MBA program in the last three years by putting more emphasis on strategy, technical innovation and ethical leadership skills,” says Siamack Shojai, dean of the Cotsakos College of Business.

“I’m very pleased with the College’s ability to develop innovative programs that are tied to the real needs of business by offering pragmatic coursework that connects theory and practice,” says Christos M. Cotsakos ’73, founder, chairman and CEO, Pennington Ventures, LLC and Distinguished Entrepreneur in the Classroom.

Princeton Review’s best 267 business schools were selected using a combination of factors including institutional and student survey data. Data used includes career outcomes, admissions selectivity, and academic rigor, among others.

The Cotsakos College of Business programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. The College offers a master’s degree in business administration, with concentrations in accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, general MBA, marketing, music management, and human resource management.
