As the only UT System school ranked, the UTSA College of Business shared the spotlight with schools such as Howard University, Thunderbird and the University of San Francisco.
"Nationwide, MBA programs average only 10 percent minorities. UTSA is leading the nation with more than 30 percent of our graduate students being minorities," said Diane Walz, associate dean for graduate studies and research in the College of Business. "This is crucial as the demographic shift in the United States will soon reflect a larger minority population. Our students are valuable assets to national companies looking to boost their minority representation in response to this need."
The Princeton Review conducted surveys with 18,000 students attending business schools and received institutional data from universities to round out its rankings.
Business schools were judged by those offering the greatest opportunity for minority students based on percentage of minority students, percentage of minority faculty and resources for minority students.
