Weber State University's John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics has joined the University of Utah's David Eccles School of Business and Brigham Young University's Marriott School in the 2013 edition of the Princeton Review's "The Best 296 Business Schools."

The annual guide survey asked 19,000 MBA students their opinions of their schools' academics, student body and campus life as well as about themselves and their career plans.

The Princeton Review does not rank the schools in the book on a single hierarchical list from one to 296, nor does in name one business school best overall. Instead, it compiled 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 thing about the program," said Mark Stevenson, enrollment director for the MBA program at WSU.
