Hispanic Network Magazine Names San Diego State University Among “Best of the Best” University and M.B.A. School
SAN DIEGO (Wednesday, May 15, 2013) – San Diego State University (SDSU) announced today that Hispanic Network Magazine named SDSU’s College of Business Administration among the Top M.B.A. Schools and named the university among the Top Colleges and Universities in the magazine’s 2013 Best of the Best Lists.
“San Diego State University takes great pride in the academic achievements of our students, who are extraordinarily diverse ethnically and socioeconomically,” said SDSU Provost Nancy Marlin. “Our cultural diversity is one of the significant strengths of SDSU, and advantages all our students by preparing them to succeed academically and professionally at the university and in their future careers.”
“Our successful outreach programs have provided San Diego State University and the College of Business Administration with outstanding diverse and first-generation students that have emerged as some of our region’s most successful business leaders,” said Dr. Michael Cunningham, dean of SDSU’s College of Business Administration. “We are honored that Hispanic Network Magazine has recognized our continuing efforts to recruit best-in-class students that encompass all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.”
SDSU has a long history of diversity and was recently ranked as the 18th most ethnically diverse university in the nation in the 2013 annual survey of U.S. colleges and universities from U.S. News & World Report. Students who have identified themselves as Hispanic make up 27.5 percent of the total student population.
Now in its 21st year, Hispanic Network Magazine’s stated objective is “to create an environment of teamwork in which Latin Americans and other minorities have access to all applicable business and career opportunities.”
Their Best of the Best lists are compiled through their annual survey of approximately 900 human resource directors, chief diversity officers, talent and acquisition managers and others to evaluate outreach and diversity policies in U.S. universities, M.B.A. programs, health care companies and corporations.
