UA Featured in Princeton Review Best 373 Colleges
The annual rankings have been issued, and the UA made the top 50 Best Value Public Colleges and Best Western Colleges lists.
With the new school year around the corner, Princeton Review has issued its annual rankings of the nation's top colleges – including the University of Arizona.
Most prominently, the UA's Eller College of Management ranked N. 3 on the list of best entrepreneurial undergraduate programs. The ranking stemmed from a survey of more than 900 undergraduate and business schools and their offerings.
The UA is one of the few research universities in the country to offer an undergraduate major in entrepreneurship through its McGuire Entrepreneurship Program, which offers a one-year interdisciplinary curriculum designed to prepare students for success as entrepreneurs and business leaders.
The UA placed well in two other categories, including being named in the educational service company's website as a top 50 Best Value Public College and made the list of Best Western Colleges.
Under the category of Best Value, the UA made the list of 50 public schools for excellent academics, low sticker price and/or generous financial aid. The UA distributes nearly $70 million in merit-based and need-based aid each year, with about three-quarters of students receiving some kind of financial aid.
The Princeton Review annually publishes its rankings and uses a variety of factors in making its decisions, including student surveys as well as institutional data from college administrators.
