Editors credit the business school with offering a good education at a competitive price with convenient scheduling. Students also surveyed the college, giving it high marks for smart classrooms, solid preparation in general management, and doing business in a global economy.

The College of Law was placed on the list largely due to comments from students who say the school has care and concern for their future. Students surveyed also said the college "strikes the perfect balance between professionalism and personal attention."

"We are pleased but not surprised," said Daniel J. Steinbock, dean of the College of Law. "We have been on this list for as long as it has existed. Students are consistently happy with the education they receive at our law school."
