(Sept. 15, 2010)--The UTSA College of Business and College of Engineering have been ranked the No. 5 and No. 7 graduate programs in the nation for Hispanics by Hispanic Business. (Read more in the September 2010 edition.) This is the third year that the College of Business was ranked in the top 10 and the first time the College of Engineering was ranked in the 13-year history of the magazine's study.
Annually, the magazine ranks the top 10 universities nationally in business, medicine, law and engineering based on five criteria: enrollment of Hispanics, percentage of full-time Hispanic faculty members, availability of student support and services, retention rates and graduate program reputation.
"We are honored to be recognized by Hispanic Business," said Lynda de la Vina, dean of the UTSA College of Business and Peter Flawn Professor of Economics. "This ranking speaks to the quality of our academic programming and the services that we provide our M.B.A. students. It elevates the college into the upper echelon of business schools in the nation."
The business school rankings (in order) included UT El Paso, New York University, UT Austin, University of Miami, UTSA, University of New Mexico, Stanford University, Florida International University, Duke University and the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
"We are delighted to be ranked among this elite group of engineering schools in the country," said C. Mauli Agrawal, David and Jennifer Spencer Distinguished Chair and dean of the UTSA College of Engineering. "Our graduate enrollment has grown more than 100 percent over the last five years and we are proud that despite such fast growth, we have been able to improve the quality of our programs and maintain the diversity of our student body."
Hispanic Business' engineering rankings included (in order) Georgia Tech, Purdue, University of Central Florida, University of New Mexico, UT El Paso, MIT, UTSA, University of Florida, Florida Atlantic University and UT Austin.
The UTSA College of Business M.B.A. program also was ranked No. 4 in the Southwest and No. 28 nationwide by BusinessWeek and was named one of the top 10 M.B.A. programs for minority students by the Princeton Review for the last five years. It is one of the 40 largest business schools in the nation with 5,600 enrolled students.
Dedicated to education, research and service, the UTSA College of Engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering schools in the state. From 2000 to 2007, the college's enrollment more than doubled and research funding increased seven-fold. The college offers academic programs in biomedical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical engineering. Research strengths include security, health, energy and the environment, and sustainability.
