Princeton Review Recognizes College
This is the eighth consecutive year that the college has been ranked in this category.
The Princeton Review conducted surveys with more than 19,000 business students at AACSB-accredited MBA programs throughout the world. Rankings were compiled using institutional data such as percentage of minority students and faculty as well as student assessment of resources for minority students, culture of students and diversity of students ethnically and racially.
College Named Lead Academic Sponsor for NSHMBA Conference
The UTSA College of Business has partnered with the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) to be the Lead Academic Sponsor of its 25th Anniversary Annual Conference & Career Expo to be held in San Antonio in October 2013.
Maintaining a longstanding relationship with NSHMBA, the college received NSHMBA’s Brillante Award for Educational Excellence, the organization’s most prestigious award in 2006.
In 2009, the college was named a University Partner of NSHMBA and provides students with MBA-level scholarships as well as career and professional development opportunities.
“Our main focus in the UTSA College of Business is transforming our students into business professionals primed with analytical and leadership skills necessary to provide them with the opportunities to succeed professionally at a national level,” said UTSA College of Business Dean Gerry Sanders.
“We are excited to serve as the academic lead for the 2013 NSHMBA conference because it allows us to showcase our talented students to top national employers, spread awareness about the strength of our students and build upon current employer relationships,” said Sanders.
The NSHMBA career expo will offer current MBA students and recent graduates the opportunity to interview with more than 2,000 human resource recruiters from top employers. Undergraduates attending the event will also benefit from the college’s participation by networking with admissions officers and faculty from MBA programs.
NSHMBA’s partnership with the college serves as a key component in attracting top academic and professional talent to the national conference. Founded in 1988 as a nonprofit organization, NSHMBA is dedicated to building and advancing Hispanic leadership, advocating the pursuit of higher education and providing its members with world-class professional development and career management programs.
The Frost Distinguished Lecture Series brings prominent business and community leaders to UTSA to share their experiences in business so that students can broaden their understanding of the business world and the individuals who lead it.
