August 20, 2014
HispanicBusiness has ranked the MBA program at the School of Business as the nation’s No. 8 such program for Hispanics in the publication’s “2014 Annual Diversity Report.”The ranking, published online August 20, is based on a number of factors including the percentage of Hispanic students and faculty at the School and the number of programs to attract and retain Hispanic students.
“Were are delighted to once again be recognized for our commitment to providing an inclusive and supportive environment for all of our students,” said Dean Gene Anderson. “A diverse community, in the broadest possible sense, is essential to the character of our School, the ideas that we generate, the education and professional development of our students, and the contribution that both make to business and society.”
Among services the School provides to Hispanic graduate students is career counseling including scholarships to attend the annual career fair of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA). The School’s Ziff Graduate Career Services Center also provides a student liaison for the South Florida NSHMBA Chapter, connects Latin American students with Latin American companies for employment, and provides networking opportunities and panel discussions through the Latin American Business Association. The School also offers the NSHMBA University Partnership Program Scholarship to select applicants who demonstrate a commitment to the Hispanic community.
"The schools on our lists are well-rounded and have made notable efforts to engage the Hispanic community," noted Hispanic Business in an article accompanying the rankings.
This is the fifth year in a row that the School of Business has been ranked among the nation’s top-10 business schools for Hispanics by Hispanic Business.
