OGDEN — Weber State University's John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics has been named one of 296 best business schools by the Princeton Review, university officials announced Monday.

The annual report does not rank schools or declare an overall best school, instead presenting a comprehensive list of academically outstanding schools. The selections are based on a survey of 19,000 students, who rate their programs based on academics, student body and campus life, and their own career plans.

"Students love Ogden, are happy, and receive solid preparation in general management," the reports entry on WSU states.

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.

“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 MBA program. “We have always taken good care of our students by offering the most flexible, evening MBA program in the state.”
