Else School Named One of the Best Business Schools in the Southeast

The Princeton ReviewThe Princeton Review has named the Else School of Management at Millsaps College one of the Best Business Schools in the Southeast.  The education services company features the school in the new 2011 edition of its book, The Best 300 Business Schools.

In its profile about the Else School, the Princeton Review editors describe the school as offering "the academic strength of a graduate business program while maintaining the 'intimate learning environment' typical of a small liberal arts school."

Dr. Rob Pearigen, Millsaps College president, said the Else School trains future business leaders for productive, entrepreneurial and ethical careers. "The Else School offers an extraordinary program of business education, approached through the liberal arts and extending to the boardrooms and factory floors of businesses in this country and in cities in Latin America, and throughout Eastern and Central Europe," he said.
