For the second year in a row, the Kelce College of Business is among the most family-friendly schools in the nation.
The Princeton Review last fall published its list of the top 10 family-friendly business schools, and Pitt State again ranks No. 5 in the U.S., ahead of Penn State, College of William and Mary, the University of Notre Dame, Duke and Cornell. Brigham Young remained in the top spot on the list, followed by Dartmouth College, Indiana University, and the University of North Carolina.
Paul Grimes, dean of the Kelce College of Business, said being ranked in the top 10 for the second consecutive year is a testament to the college’s “consistent devotion” to its students.
“We take tremendous pride in being among the most family-friendly schools in the nation,” Grimes said. “You look at that list, and we’re in very good company. To see Pittsburg State University competing strongly with institutions like BYU, Notre Dame and Duke is a testament to the ongoing commitment to family at this university and its business college.”
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.
