MBA Program Ranks 2nd in Hispanic Business Magazine Top 10 List

September 2, 2009

The MBA program at UTEP’s College of Business Administration has been ranked 2nd among the Top 10 business graduate programs for Hispanics by Hispanic Business magazine. In only its second appearance on the list, UTEP MBA climbed from the 6th place last year to 2nd place this year. 

Hispanic Business magazine features UTEP’s College of Business 2nd place ranking in its September edition, which includes the 2009 Diversity Report listing Top 10 Graduate Schools for Hispanics in four fields. The report determines a school's rank using several factors, including percentage of Hispanic students and faculty, recruiting programs, mentorship programs, Hispanic student organizations, and retention and graduation rates of Hispanic students.  The Top 10 list includes UC Berkeley, Dartmouth, Florida International, University of Miami, University of New Mexico, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Stanford, UT Austin, and UT San Antonio.

“We are honored by our continued presence in this top 10 ranking. It recognizes the efforts of the UTEP College of Business Administration’s faculty and staff to offer a competitive MBA curriculum, expand our outreach and recruitment efforts and support the success of our students.” said Dr. Robert Nachtmann, Dean of the College of Business Administration. 

Nachtmann added that the MBA program has tracked a 60 percent growth in enrollment during the last three years. 

“Our MBA program is clearly on an upward trajectory. This new ranking provides yet another acknowledgment of our growth and progress.  Thanks to the support of UTEP’s leadership, we will be expanding our MBA programs in a new executive management center scheduled to open in January 2010,” said Laura M. Uribarri, Director of MBA Programs.

The College of Business anticipates that the repeat inclusion in the Top 10 list will help recruitment efforts for its Spring 2010 Executive MBA program and its Fall 2010 International MBA.  Additionally, this ranking will help connect the College’s top MBA graduates with leading employers throughout the country.

The magazine started the list in 1998 for top law and business schools.  The list now includes medical and engineering schools. UTEP’s College of Engineering, which has topped the publication’s engineering list the last four years, will make the list again this year.
