WSU’s Goddard School Named Best Business School

Press Release

October 23, 2012


A survey conducted for the Princeton Review’s annual guidebook, named Weber State University’s John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics one of the best schools in the 2013 edition of “The Best 296 Business Schools.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from one to 296, nor does it name one business school best overall. Instead it compiles a comprehensive list of academically outstanding schools that received excellent student reviews.

“The recognition is very gratifying because, unlike other rankings, this is based on students’ opinions and what they think about the program,” said Mark Stevenson, enrollment director of WSU’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. “We have always taken good care of our students by offering the most flexible, evening MBA program in the state.”

The survey asked 19,000 students, at the best MBA programs in the world, their opinions of their schools’ academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans. 

At the announcement of the book’s release, Robert Franek, senior vice president of the Princeton Review explained the process. “We selected the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the schools,” Franek said. “We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences on our survey.”

WSU’s Goddard School received a two-page profile in the book and write-ups on academics, career and placement, student life and environment, and admissions. The profile also rates for academic experience, admissions selectivity and career services. 

Goddard students reported that they receive prompt email responses to their requests and receive good academic advising and help in navigating the system. In addition, respondents called faculty members qualified and helpful and said administrators are very easy to work with.

“Ninety percent of our students work full time and most have five years of professional experience. This review shows that our program offers an extraordinary education in a flexible format for professionals looking to take their career to the next level,” Stevenson said.
