Hispanic Business Magazine Ranks Ross School Among Top 10

11/2/2004 --

The school's reputation and active recruiting is evident in its programs that attract Hispanic students.

ANN ARBOR, Mich – The Stephen M. Ross School of Business was recently ranked No. 9 among business schools for Hispanics by Hispanic Business Magazine. The honor joins a chain of successes for the school as it was just ranked the No. 1 business school in the nation by the Wall Street Journal and No. 6 by BusinessWeek.

According to Hispanic Business Magazine, the school's reputation and active recruiting is evident in its many programs to lure the Hispanic community. Programs include the Consortium for Graduate Studies in Management and representation at the annual conferences of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. Hispanic students also are supported on campus through the Hispanic and Latino Business Students Association.

Partnerships with the Robert A. Toigo Foundation, Management Leadership for Tomorrow and several corporate constituents also create awareness and encourage Hispanics to consider graduate management studies.

Every November, the "UpClose" program supports the initiative by providing education on the business school to underrepresented minorities through a variety of workshops, career development presentations, class sessions and social events.

The schools were evaluated in five categories including enrollment, faculty, student services, retention rate and reputation.

Other schools ranked among the top 10: No. 1 Stanford, No. 2 Yale, No. 3 New York University (Stern), No. 4 University of Texas (McCombs), No. 5 University of North Carolina (Keenan-Flagler), No. 6 University of New Mexico (Anderson), No. 7 University of Miami, No. 8 Duke (Fuqua) and No. 10 University of Southern California (Marshall).
