January 8, 2008

Coastal Carolina University's E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration has been selected for inclusion in the 2009 edition of "Best Business Schools" published by The Princeton Review and Random House.

"Best Business Schools" is an annual student opinion-driven publication that seeks to give prospective business students an insider's view on the best business schools. It includes school profiles and rankings based on student opinion on a variety of topics, from academic offerings and the quality of professors to recruiting and placement in the job market.

"Inclusion in 'Best Business Schools' is a recognition of the high quality of the Wall College's faculty and business programs," said Henry Lowenstein, dean of the college.

"For the Wall College of Business to be included in the 'Best Business Schools' is recognition of the tremendous value being added to students' lives by our business college," said Coastal Provost Robert Sheehan. "Faculty and students alike have been working for years to make our business college a national leader - and they have succeeded."

The college is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Approximately 60 students are enrolled in the MBA program, and 2,095 are enrolled in the undergraduate program that offers the following majors: accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing and resort tourism management. There is also a specialization program in Professional Golf Management (PGM), which is one of 19 endorsed by the PGA of America.

Thirty-eight full-time faculty teach the business curriculum, in addition to a number of part-time instructors.
