Duquesne University’s Palumbo-Donahue School of Business ranked among the best in the country on The Princeton Review’s ‘Best Business Schools for 2023’.

As one of the education services company’s top choices for on-campus MBA programs, Duquesne was selected for its exceptional career outcomes, admissions selectivity, and academic rigor.

“It’s gratifying to be recognized by The Princeton Review among the top business schools in the country as we constantly strive to ensure that our programs support the work we do in difference-making," said Palumbo-Donahue School of Business Dean Dr. Dean McFarlin.

The Princeton Review also surveyed students enrolled in Duquesne’s MBA program. One student remarked, “I feel as if I've been given unbelievable opportunities by attending Duquesne,” adding that the “school’s close proximity to downtown Pittsburgh’s business and professional climate” helped students secure internships to help take their careers to the next level.

"All of the business schools that made our list for 2023 deliver exceptional business education and programs,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief. “We commend them for their excellent academics, and we recommend them highly to prospective MBA applicants.”

The Princeton Review editors weigh more than 60 data points in making their selections for their annual Best Business Schools lists. The selections for the 2023 list took into account data from surveys the company conducted in 2021-22 of administrators at 243 schools offering on-campus MBA programs as well as surveys over the past three academic years of 20,300 students enrolled in the programs.  

“This recognition reflects the impact and quality of our MBA program as trusted, innovative leaders in Higher Education, where our students learn to make a difference in and for the world,” said McFarlin.
