The Darden Graduate School of Business at the University of Virginia has selected Palisade Corporation's StatTools as the standard statistics software for all its MBA candidates. Ranked 12th in the Wall Street Journal's 2004 overall ratings of graduate business schools, the Darden School has made an "integrated and innovative curriculum and course materials" a core goal in its mission. With the adoption of StatTools, Darden joins the growing ranks of universities using the Palisade statistics package. Other recent adopters include Pace University and the University of Indiana.
"Robust and Easy to Use"
According to Dr. Phillip E. Pfeifer, professor of marketing, "Palisade did a good job of balancing ease of use with flexibility and robust results. I think StatTools will allow our students to perform better statistical models more easily." A longtime @RISK and DecisionTools Suite user, Dr. Pfeifer liked StatTools' snug fit with Excel, its short learning curve, and its easy, check-box approach to defining a dataset.
Echoing Dr. Pfeifer was Shawn Harahush, StatTools Product Manager at Palisade: "One of the goals in developing StatTools was to make the software easy to use, thus avoiding the need to learn a complex new package."
