Josipa Roksa has work about academic rigor cited in new article by Time about the best business schools.
Academic rigor. Look for programs that meet the standards set by AACSB International, the major accrediting body for business schools. But don’t stop there. Some business programs fail to provide students with the “soft” skills, such as writing and critical thinking, they need to succeed, according to a study by Richard Arum of New York University and Josipa Roksa of the University of Virginia. So ask about breadth requirements too. At the best schools, business majors also get a solid grounding in the liberal arts.
