(July 24, 2013) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) College of Business has partnered with the National Society of Hispanic M.B.A.s (NSHMBA) to be the lead academic sponsor of its 25th Anniversary Annual Conference & Career Expo in San Antonio Oct. 10-12.
The UTSA College of Business has been active with NSHMBA since 2001. In 2006, the college received the NSHMBA Brillante Award for Educational Excellence, its most prestigious award. In 2009, the college was named a University Partner of NSHMBA and has developed a strong partnership at the local and national levels by providing students with M.B.A.-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 Gerry Sanders, dean of the UTSA College of Business. "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."
The NSHMBA career expo will offer current M.B.A. students and recent graduates the opportunity to interview with more than 2,000 human resources recruiters from top employers. Undergraduates attending the event also will benefit from UTSA's participation by networking with admissions officers and faculty from M.B.A. programs.
An integral part of an emerging Tier One research institution, the UTSA College of Business has a longstanding tradition of providing both first-generation and minority students with high-quality academic programs and student services. It is one of the 40 largest business schools in the nation with more than 5,700 students. Recognized for developing "Knowledge for a New World," the UTSA College of Business offers a comprehensive business curriculum with more than 46 degree programs. The NSHMBA partnership with the UTSA College of Business is a key component in attracting top academic and professional talent to the national conference.
Hispanic Business magazine has ranked the UTSA College of Business graduate program No. 7 in the nation for Hispanics. Additionally, UTSA ranks among the top 10 U.S. institutions awarding both undergraduate and graduate degrees to Hispanic students, according to 2013 reports by Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education and Diverse Issues in Higher Education.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
This exhibit includes prints by 25 Latino and Latina artists who worked in collaboration with a master printer in the print studio at the UTSA Department of Art and Art History. It runs through Oct. 12.
