The Princeton Review has again ranked St. Mary’s University’s Bill Greehey School of Business and its M.B.A. program in the top 10 nationally for “Greatest Opportunity for Women” in the latest edition of its publication, The Best 301 Business Schools: 2010 Edition, which hit bookstores this week.
This is the third year in a row that the Bill Greehey School of Business has been recognized. This year the school has moved up two slots to number six; and, it is also the only school in the Southwest in this category.
The ranking is based on the percent of female students, the percent of faculty who are women, and results of the student assessments of a variety of factors including resources for female students and how supportive the culture is of female students.
“This honor is especially important to us as it comes when St. Mary’s M.B.A. program is celebrating its 50th anniversary,” said Bill Greehey School of Business Dean Tanuja Singh, Ph.D. “We strive to offer a rich academic environment where individualized experiences are designed to instill ethical leadership, technical excellence, global awareness and professional orientation in our graduates.”
St. Mary’s School of Law was also featured in The Princeton Review’s other guide, The Best 172 Law Schools: 2010 Edition.
The Princeton Review does not rank the business or the law schools in the books on a single hierarchical list, or name one school as best overall. Instead, the book has 11 ranking lists of the top 10 business and law schools in various categories. Ten lists are based on The Princeton Review’s surveys of students attending the schools profiled in the book. The surveys were conducted during the 2008-2009, 2007-2008, and 2006-2007 academic years.
