University of Texas of El Paso Named Top MBA School for Hispanics
Based on the percentage of Hispanic enrollment in graduate business schools, Hispanic Business Magazine has once again identified the top schools for Hispanics and this year the honor went to the University of Texas at El Paso followed by New York University and the University of Texas at Austin.
The ranking not only takes into consideration Hispanic enrollment but looks at the percentage of Hispanic faculty in place and outreach programs to enroll more Hispanic students in graduate programs. The University of Texas at El Paso’s MBA program has 390 Hispanic students which represent 88% of all students enrolled. In 2009 the University only had 78 Hispanic students enrolled in its graduate business program.
“It represents another giant step in the right direction as we continue to progress toward becoming the first national research university with a 21st-century student demographic,” said University President Diana Natalicio.
