BOCA RATON , FL (October 28, 2008) – Florida Atlantic University’s Barry Kaye College of Business has been named to The Princeton Review’s list of “Best 296 Business Schools” for 2009. Known for its college rankings based on how students rate their schools, The Princeton Review compiled the data based on its survey of 19,000 students attending 296 business schools.
FAU was not only honored for having professors that are recognized leaders in the business industry who offer classes that are challenging and involved with cases from real-world scenarios, but also for its fully-operational trading room, state-of-the-art technology, solid faculty teamwork, supportive environment and strong interpersonal skills.
“The inclusion in this ranking demonstrates that FAU’s Barry Kaye College of Business is successful in bridging the gap between theory and practice,” said Dennis Coates, dean of the College. “Our faculty relates to the world of business, and our graduates owe much of their success in business to this exposure as students.”

The 80-question survey asks students about their school's academics, student body and campus life, themselves and their career plans.
