Texas MBA Continues To Have Big Impact In Latin America

Texas MBA No. 17 WorldwideLast month, AméricaEconomía published their annual ranking of full-time MBA programs that are of particular appeal to Latin Americans, and for the second year in a row McCombs rose in the rankings, up three spots to No. 17 worldwide.

The Texas MBA Full-Time Program rose two spots among U.S. schools to No. 7, overtaking Vanderbilt and Georgetown University, and held steady among American public institutions at No. 3. Only Berkeley (7) and UNC (14) fared better among public schools.

For more on the ranking and the methodology used, visit McCombs Today.

Below are comments on the ranking from some of McCombs’ Latin American students:

McCombs posiciona a sus estudiantes a agarrar al mundo por los cuernos.

“Texas has historically held a prestigious position in Latin American hearts. With the U.S. being the #1 foreign trade partner for many Latin American countries, including Mexico, it’s no wonder why every month I receive increasing calls and emails from Latin American prospective students interested in the Texas MBA. The advantages McCombs offers, combined with Latin American entrepreneurial spirit stronger than ever, positions graduate students to win with countless friends, mentors, and opportunities to take on the world by the horns.”

Texas MBA Soars To No. 19 In Latest Businessweek Rankings

McCombs Hits 19 In Businessweek’s Coveted MBA Ranking

The Texas MBA Program soared to No. 19 in Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2012 biennial ranking of the best business schools in the nation.

Now in its 13th season, Businessweek’s survey is widely considered America’s most influential business school ranking. The Businessweek ranking, which debuted in 1988, has only three components: student satisfaction (45 percent), employer satisfaction (45 percent), and intellectual capital (10 percent).

The Texas MBA Program improved in all three areas, with an especially strong rally in the employer survey, where the school came in 15th in the nation based on 663 responses. In the student survey, McCombs received a letter grade of “A” for career services, leadership skills, and caliber of classmates.

“We are pleased with our top-20 ranking,” says Tina Mabley, director of the full-time MBA program. “Businessweek measures two of our key stakeholders: students and employers. While we don’t manage to the rankings, exceeding student expectations and developing exceptional talent for today’s employers is always our goal.”

In the intellectual capital component, which measures the faculty’s research prowess, McCombs rose to 4th place, besting big-hitters such as Chicago’s Booth School of Business, the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), Harvard, and Stanford.

(New this year, Businessweek.com included videos of MBA life at the top-25 programs—check out McCombs’ video—and has launched a new online B-School finder tool, which enables readers to compare schools around the world on more than 100 metrics.)

For the fourth time in a row, Chicago took the highest spot out of 63 ranked institutions. Harvard and Wharton came in second and third, respectively.

McCombs was a top gunner among schools that ascended in rank. Having risen six spots from No. 25, the school’s robust increase was matched only by Cornell among the top-30 schools ranked in the business journal’s 2010 list.

Other top schools seeing improvements in rank included Carnegie Mellon, Indiana, and Notre Dame (all up four).

Schools dropping in rank included the likes of Berkeley and Columbia, as well as Brigham Young and Minnesota (all down five). Those taking a tumble also included Michigan State and Southern Methodist University (down 15 and 17 ranks, respectively).

Apart from McCombs, the only other Texas school to land in the top 30 was Texas A&M at rank 26. SMU came in at 29th, Rice at 36th, and Texas Christian University at 46th.

McCombs 2nd For Best Professors, Campus In Princeton Review Rankings

Originally posted by Jeremy Simon on McCombs Today.

McCombs School of Business students are among the happiest in the nation when it comes to both their campus environment and the quality of their professors, according to new survey results from the Princeton Review.

Campus environment and professor quality make McCombs students some of the nation's happiest

McCombs has placed in the top 10 for best professors for four straight years..

McCombs placed among the top 10 in two categories — best campus environment and best professors — out of the Princeton Review’s 11 attribute rankings. Based on student responses to survey questions, McCombs ranked:

  • No. 2 for best campus environment, based on student responses regarding how happy they are and how they rate the campus community. Only UCLA scored higher for campus environment.
  • No. 2 for best professors, based on student responses regarding how good their professors are as teachers and how accessible professors are outside the classroom. Only Berkeley professors were rated more highly.

Although earning silver medals in two categories marked a banner year for McCombs, it wasn’t the first time students have given such high marks to the business school. With this latest survey result, the Princeton Review has now placed McCombs professors among the top 10 in the nation for four straight years.
