St. Mary’s University’s Bill Greehey School of Business is once again included as an outstanding business graduate school by The Princeton Review, an education services company. The Princeton Review features the school and its Greehey MBA program in the new 2013 edition of its book, The Best 296 Business Schools, released this month.
The MBA programs included in the publication were chosen based on academic programs and offerings, as well as a review of institutional data collected from the schools. Student survey results were also considered.
The Princeton Review editors describe the Greehey MBA program as one that offers “innovative programs designed to graduate conscientious global business leaders.”
“Our mission in the Greehey School of Business is to offer innovative programs that provide a top-notch education for our students while also instilling in them a strong sense of ethics and community. That is exactly what the Greehey MBA is about,” said Tanuja Singh, D.B.A., business school dean.
Earnie Broughton, director of the MBA and Executive Education Program, is pleased that the graduate program has again been included. He noted that recent changes to the Greehey MBA make it even more responsive and innovative. The new Greehey MBA, an 18-month, cohort-based program that incorporates advanced graduate-level academic preparation with a special emphasis on ethical leadership, corporate social responsibility, sustainability and social entrepreneurship — topics that have become hallmarks of St. Mary’s University and the Greehey School of Business.
“The Greehey MBA provides our students an exceptional professional education that enables them to become ethical, moral and innovative business leaders,” Broughton added. “In a today’s business world, these are qualities increasingly important, with innovation presenting a strong competitive advantage.”
The Greehey School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, a designation achieved by less than one-third of all U.S. business programs.
