Goddard School Named a Top Business Program

OGDEN, Utah – For the third consecutive year, Weber State University's John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics is included in the Princeton Review's "Best 301 Business Schools" publication.

The New York-based education services company has selected the Goddard School's master of business administration program for inclusion in the 2010 edition of its book, which is now available to the public at bookstores throughout the United States.

"Once again this is a tremendous external recognition for our MBA program because it is directly linked to the quality of our faculty, staff and students," said Lewis Gale, dean of the Goddard School. "It is a clear indication that our growing program is one of the best in the state of Utah and the intermountain region."

The Goddard School debuted in the 2008 edition of the Princeton Review list.

According to the Princeton Review, inclusion in the book is based on several criteria such as their regard for the schools' academic programs and other offerings, institutional data collected about the schools, and opinions of students attending the schools.

"Best 301 Business Schools" has two-page profiles of the schools, which include information on their academics, student life and admissions, plus ratings for their academics, selectivity and career placement services. The Princeton Review does not name a best business school overall or rank the schools in the book from 1 to 301. The book has, instead, 11 ranking lists with each one reporting just the top 10 business schools (of the 301 in the book) in different categories from "Toughest to Get Into" to "Best Career Prospects." 

The Princeton Review compiles the book's ratings and ranking lists based on institutional data it collects from the schools and surveys of more than 19,000 students attending the schools profiled in the book. The survey asks students about themselves and their career plans, as well as their schools' academics, student body and campus life.
