College of Business Named Top 10 Minority MBA Program
—December 20, 2005
of Texas at San Antonio College of Business was ranked as one of the top 10 business schools nationally for minority MBA
students. The ranking was compiled by the Princeton Review. The Princeton Review annually conducts surveys with students
attending the schools and receives institutional data from universities to round out its rankings.
Business schools were judged by those offering the greatest opportunity for minority students based on percentage of minority
students, percentage of minority faculty and resources for minority students.
As the only UT-System school ranked, the College of Business shared the spotlight with Howard University, American University,
Thunderbird and the University of San Francisco.
"With the average MBA program averaging 4.5 percent Hispanic students, UTSA is leading the nation with more than 31
percent of our graduate body being Hispanic," said Dean Lynda de la Viña. "This is crucial
as the demographic shift in the United States will soon reflect a larger Hispanic population. Our students are valuable assets
to national companies looking to boost their minority representation in response to this need."
