Princeton Review names UNF’s Coggin College top business school for 11th consecutive year


The Coggin College of Business at the University of North Florida is featured in The Princeton Review's 2018 edition of its annual guidebook, "Best 267 Business Schools,” for the 11th consecutive year.

“This recognition is a testament to the outstanding faculty and staff in Coggin, the quality of our students, the relevance of our undergraduate and graduate programs and support from employers and corporate partners," said Dr. Mark Hawkins, dean of the Coggin College at UNF.

UNF has recently received several other national designations, including 2018 “Best in the Southeast” by Princeton Review, 2018 “Best Regional” University by U.S. News & World Report, 2018 “Best Colleges” by College Factual and the 2017 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award and Diversity Champion, both from Insight into Diversity magazine.

The Princeton Review tallied its list based on surveys of 23,000 students. The 80-question survey asked students to rate their schools on various subject matter and report on their experiences.

“We recommend UNF as one of the best to earn an MBA," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review senior vice president-publisher. "We chose the 267 schools in this book based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data we collect from the schools."

Additionally, the Princeton Review described UNF as "the best school in Jacksonville" in its “Best 267 Business Schools” feature.

In May 2006, Coggin College had two of its programs—Transportation and Logistics and International Business—selected as UNF flagship programs, due to the potential for them to draw talented students from around the world, tackle cutting-edge research projects and help solve problems facing today's businesses.

With more than 3,800 students, Coggin College’s mission is to educate and develop business professionals through rigorous, accredited degree programs.
