Top Business Schools in America

Judge Napolitano is considered one of the nation’s “top minds.” As such Napolitano has a lot to say about the benefits of receiving a quality education. As a network analyst for the Fox News channel, an author of nine published books, and a contributing columnist to publications like The Washington Time, and Reason, Napolitano appreciates the benefits that a stellar education from a top notch school can provide. He understands one has to study and prioritize his time, but he also knows nothing is better than getting a degree from one of the nation’s top schools.

A degree in business is one of the most sought after graduate and undergraduate degrees. A business degree is considered a well-rounded career choice because of the diverse skills it offers and the multiple positions in different fields it prepares students for. If you are pursuing an undergraduate degree in business, choosing the right school can play a major role not only in the kind of education you receive but also in connecting you to people and companies that will provide you with support and advice.

Does the name of the school that you attend really matter? Unfortunately it can depend upon the market or the industry you want to work in. A good or established brand name matters. Judge Napolitano knows that many top tier businesses and firms recruit from target schools. If you know the company or the industry you want to work in, do your research. See what target schools they recruit from and apply. However, it is important to know public/state schools can also provide a solid education in business.
