Princeton Review calls Marriott School "Most Family Friendly"

The 2006 edition of The Princeton Review’s “Best 237 Business Schools” named Brigham Young University’s Marriott School the nation’s “Most Family-Friendly” business school.

“This should come as no surprise,” says Jim Stice, MBA director. “Since our goals and objectives of the MBA program are aligned with those of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it is our responsibility and commitment to be family-friendly.”

The “Most Family-Friendly” ranking is based on a student assessment of how happily married the students are, how helpful the school is to students with children and how much the school does for the spouses of students.

“Being recognized in this area is another indication that our MBA Spouses Association is second to none,” Stice continues. “They ensure that the spouses of our MBA students are aware of and involved in the education process. With the high demands of a nationally ranked MBA program, the Spouses Association provides a great support network through challenging times.”

The rankings are based on Princeton Review’s surveys of 16,000 business school students. The surveys are made up of 79 multiple-choice questions and seven free-response questions, covering five sections: about yourself, students, academics, careers and quality of life. Surveys were conducted primarily online during the 2004–05 and 2003–04 academic years.
