Once again, Pittsburg State University’s Kelce College of Business can rightly say it ranks above Harvard, Duke and Notre Dame.
The Princeton Review recently published its 2017 list of the top 10 family-friendly business schools, and Pittsburg State ranks No. 4 in the U.S., one spot above Harvard University.
“It’s really cool every single year,” said KCOB Dean Paul Grimes said of the ranking. “We take great pride in providing a family-friendly environment, and consistently being ranked in the top five nationwide means a great deal.”
Pitt State is joined in the top five by Brigham Young University, the International Institute for Management Development and Dartmouth College. Other institutions in the top 10 include the University of North Carolina, Duke University, Indiana University, Rice University and the University of Notre Dame.
For the Family Friendly category, the Review examined student answers to survey questions concerning how happy married students are, how many students have children, how helpful the school is to students with children, and how much the school does for spouses of students.
Along with being among the most family-friendly schools, the Kelce College of Business was also named by the Review as one of the top 294 business colleges in the nation.
“Students looking for a quality school located in a quiet area that is great for learning are encouraged to check out” the Kelce College of Business, the Review wrote.
The Review cited an unnamed student who wrote, “There is an excellent diversity of professors at PSU. Even though I am a non-traditional student, I feel that I have really grown academically and personally due to the guidance of the PSU professors.”
