The Coggin College of Business (CCB) at the University of North Florida is one of the nation’s most outstanding business schools, according to The Princeton Review, who chose 249 business schools from across the country for its 2020 business school ranking.

“The Coggin College is pleased to be recognized as a ‘Best Business’ school by Princeton Review for the 13th consecutive year,” said Dr. Mark Dawkins, CCB dean and professor. “This honor is a testament to the dedication of our students, faculty, staff, parents, donors and corporate partners. Our graduate enrollment has increased 70% in four years, and we look forward to continuing to provide outstanding talent to North Florida and the nation.”

The Princeton Review’s best on-campus MBA list, used to compile the “Best Business Schools” list, was determined by a combination of factors including institutional data such as career outcomes, admissions selectivity and academic rigor as well as business school students’ survey data covering topics like academics, career prospects and campus diversity.

UNF was also recently honored as a “Best in the Southeast” by Princeton Review in the “2020 Best Colleges: Region by Region” website feature.

Students who took part in the survey described UNF as “the best school in Jacksonville.” Students praised the University for small class sizes, numerous online course opportunities and evening classes for those students with full-time jobs. “I went here as an undergrad,” one student said, “and had the best experience with the teachers and students. It was an easy decision to continue my (graduate) education at UNF.”
