Princeton ReviewThe MBA program at the UM School of Business is ranked No. 6 in the nation among business schools that provide the greatest opportunity for minority MBA students in a report just released by The Princeton Review. The ranking is part of a book, “The Best 301 Business Schools,” published annually by the education services company. The Princeton Review chose the 301 business schools based on their academic programs and offerings, a review of institutional data collected from the schools, and opinions of students who rate and report on their campus experiences. The “greatest opportunity for minority student” ranking is based on the percentage of minority students and faculty as well as a student assessment of: resources for minority students, how supportive the culture is of minority students, and whether fellow students are ethnically and racially diverse.

“We’re very pleased to be recognized once again for providing one of the nation’s best MBA learning environments for minorities,” said Dean Barbara E. Kahn. “The combination of the School’s diverse student body, international faculty and globally-focused curriculum provides all of our students with the kind of learning experience they need to be successful in an economy where all business is global.”

The ranking follows a report in September by Hispanic Business magazine which cited the School as having the nation’s No. 3 MBA program for Hispanics. The Hispanic Business ranking is based on a number of factors ranging from the recruitment and retention of Hispanic MBA students to the quality of business education provided to Hispanics.

The Princeton Review book also includes profiles of the schools with write-ups on their academics, student life and admissions. The profile for the School of Business says “UM excels in numerous disciplines. Students laud the ‘strong finance department,’ the ‘great [concentration] in international business, the ‘strong marketing curriculum,’ and UM’s ‘good slant towards the health fields, with a strong emphasis on problems we are facing today, including Obama’s health plan, universal health care, and global health care.’”

Students also said the School’s faculty members are “renowned for [their] research and corporate experience, are able to speak to us using [their] experiences” and said they appreciate that their professors “are very accessible.”
