The University of Tampa's Sykes College of Business listed among best business schools in the world.

TAMPA — For the eighth year in a row, The University of Tampa's Sykes College of Business has been named as an outstanding business school by The Princeton Review. The college made the Review's list of the Best 295 Business Schools in the world.

The Princeton Review created the ranking based on its surveys of 20,300 students attending the 295 business schools during the 2012-2013, 2011-2012 and 2010-2011 academic years. The Princeton Review doesn't rank schools included in the top 295.

In the The University of Tampa write up, students are quoted as saying that at the Sykes College of Business “the academic experience is excellent. The school has built an environment that pushes the students to talk to each other, and ask each other for support,” and that “The University of Tampa does an excellent job preparing you for the business world.” Students also appreciate the “cheap tuition,” and that “most of the classes require heavy interaction instead of just the instructor speaking.” Lastly, students also praise the “beautiful campus” with “a business building that is top notch, with up-to-date facilities.”

“We recommend The University of Tampa Sykes College of Business as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree,” Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher says in a press release. “We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools.”

The Sykes College of Business offers both undergraduate and graduate coursework. Graduate students can pursue an M.B.A, as well as master's of science degrees in accounting, finance and marketing.
