Stress situations confronted in anyone’s study and work environment are seen as a chief characteristic of our modern society. Therefore, researchers from different scientific fields, perpetually, are studying this phenomenon and trying, by several tools and methods to suggest an appropriate conceptualization. This hard exercise conducted by researchers emphasize how this concept called stress is related to a complex phenomenon, why its study is significant for many stakeholders (public administrations, private organizations, universities, families, students, etc.) and to what extent the results obtained from empirical investigations could be beneficial to establish efficient strategies or at least adjust others deployed somewhere. This article is in search of explaining the business students’ stress on the subject of the situations that could explain their emergence in a university context. Methodologically, our research paper was based on a quantitative questionnaire distributed to 500 college business students in Kingdom of Morocco to emphasize their evaluation of the sources recognized to be the catalyst of stress felt in their study and living environment. Classification, in the light of the business students’ stress, was made to aggregate, in factors, the situations acknowledged to be sources of anxiety for business students. As a result, six factors underlying the business students’ stress sources were found. Nevertheless these factors, when confronted to the literature, explicit divergence that could be enlightened to fit comprehension and simplification purpose.
