New Online Resource for Business School Applicants

Posted by: Francesca Di Meglio on July 16, 2008

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an accrediting body, recently launched BestBizSchools.com, a new online resource for applicants to business school.

Featuring information on undergraduate, masters, and doctorate programs, the site gives an overview of the different degree options candidates have and allows you to search AACSB accredited schools by geography, specialty areas, and GMAT score range, for example.

"Students can search for an AACSB accredited school by a wide variety of criteria - such as a specific business program, the ratio of faculty to students, price, location, or private-versus-public," says Brenda Lovell, vice president and chief education officer at AACSB International, according to a press release. "The site provides a comprehensive, single source of information that allows students to compare schools and select the program that best fits their needs. In addition, it's a great resource for guidance counselors and professors as well."

BestBizSchools.com also offers the AACSB's take on media rankings, which is somewhat cautionary, and an overview of how accreditation works. What do you think of BestBizSchools.com? Check out the site and leave your comments about it here.
