The Black EOE (Employment and Entrepreneur) Journal released the results of its annual “Best of the Best” list for 2017, and The University of Texas at El Paso’s Master of Business Administration program has earned a spot on the list of Top MBA Programs.
“This ranking and acknowledgement is a testament to the collective efforts and successes of the UTEP MBA alumni, students, faculty and staff,” said Laura M. Uribarri, assistant dean for UTEP College of Business Administration. “It is also one more validation of our mission of access and excellence in graduate business education.”
The rankings are based on the publication’s review of the nation’s Best of the Best Top Employers; Supplier Diversity Programs; LGBT-Friendly Companies and MBA Programs.
The journal, now celebrating its 26th year of diversity, polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for the evaluations and considered market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and survey responses.
“By sharing these unique responses, we hope to not only increase quality candidates, but encourage other companies to follow the lead and ultimately create a more diverse workforce,” said Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher of Black EOE Journal.
This is the latest accolade for the MBA program. Hispanic Network Magazine recently announced its 2017 “Best of the Best” lists, and the program was included among the nation’s elite.
UTEP’s College of Business Administration is the El Paso area’s only school accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – the premier international accrediting body for business schools.
Other universities recognized include Yale, Stanford, Harvard and Columbia.
