University of Albany's MBA Ranked #15 For General Business by Princeton Review

The Princeton Review Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools found that the UAlbany MBA ranked with Harvard, Dartmouth and Stanford in the general management category. Over 19,000 student surveys were used to identify the 15 top business schools in accounting, finance, general management, global management, marketing and operations. UAlbany was the only SUNY school named in any category. The results were presented in the April issue of Entrepreneur magazine. The fifteen schools are listed alphabetically and are not ranked within categories. See complete list below.

"This national ranking in Princeton Review reflects our growing prominence in teaching and research," said School of Business Dean Don Siegel. "More importantly, it signifies our commitment to providing students with the strong foundation they need to succeed in today's competitive business environment."

Besides this honor and the Princeton Review recognition of UAlbany MBA as the number nine program in the nation with the best opportunities for women, the University at Albany School of Business received a fair amount of attention in April.

The Society for Human Resource Management, the premier human resource association, certified the UAlbany Human Resource Information Systems concentration as one of four MBA programs in the country meeting criteria for a comprehensive education in human resource management. It is the only MBA program in the nation to incorporate information technology into a human resource curriculum. Established in 1985, the HRIS MBA was and continues to be ahead of its time.

Finance professors Hany Shawky and David Smith were named to the academic advisory board of the Index Business Association. See article this issue. The pair were also recently quoted in the Wall Street Journal. In addition, Professor Shawky was recently ranked #550 in the field of finance out of a field of over 9,000 academics worldwide, chosen for the number of publications published in the top 26 finance journals.

Our students are being honored as well. First year MBA students Jeff King and Jim McGaughan are finalists in the Whitman School of Management Case Competition. Yet another team of first year MBA students, Andrew Cuthbert, Mark Adams, and James McGaughan, were recently named finalists in the Golub Corporation Ultimate Innovation Competition.
