The Princeton Review, a leading higher education organization, has included Mays Business School at Texas A&M University in the 2009 edition of their annual report, Best Business Schools. Mays MBA program makes the list at 7th in the nation for the categoryÂ “Greatest Opportunity for Minority Students,” and is again one of the top 296 b-schools in the nation, of the 19,000 schools evaluatedâ€”putting Mays in the top 1.5 percent. Rather than rank each school in a specific position, the Princeton Review compiles a list of the top programs, placing each recognized institution in alphabetical order.
Wendy Flynn, director of MBA admissions at Mays, explains that the school’s repeat inclusion in this ranking reflects the continued strength of the Mays MBA program. “We are particularly proud of the designation as a top ten program for opportunities for minority students. We consider the diversity represented in our program to be one of our greatest strengths,” she said.
Theses rankings resulted from a three-year survey, which polled students at AACSB-accredited MBA programs in the world. The Princeton Review uses these numbers to give readers the most information possible for choosing the business school that best fits their needs.
Mays Business School currently enrolls more than 4,000 undergraduate students and 875 graduate students. The MBA program is highly selective, with an acceptance rate of 26%. Currently there are 164Â students in their intensive 16-month program.
