To the Sawyer Business School Community,

The fall semester ended with two pieces of exciting news: In its 2022 rankings, The Princeton Review once again rated the Sawyer Business School as one of the Best Business Schools in the country.
Not only that, for the first time our online MBA program was ranked in the Top 50 in the nation.
As you’ll see in the story below, this important recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our faculty. Their focus, determination, and enthusiasm for our students — especially during the pandemic — have been phenomenal.
Support for the Business School also comes from alumni like Ed McDonnell (pictured above), whose travel scholarship fund has enabled students to see how business works around the world and whose new book we celebrated last fall. And there's the continued support we get from the greater SBS community, members of whom served as judges for presentations from our first-year students at the end of the fall and who have donated to our Career Closet.
I’m excited to share these stories and faculty news with you! Best wishes for the year ahead.
