Texas MBA Continues Excellence in Latin American Ranking
The McCombs School of Business landed at No. 23 worldwide in AméricaEconomía's list of full-time MBA programs that are of particular relevance and appeal to Latin Americans. The Texas MBA Full-Time Program placed seventh among U.S. schools, and took second place among public institutions.
This is the fifth year in a row for McCombs to make the domestic top 10.
"McCombs has fostered a strong connection to Latin America for many years, which is evident in our student body, in our exchange partners in Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, and Chile, and in our Executive MBA at Mexico City Program," says Tina Mabley, assistant dean and director of the Texas MBA. "We are delighted to see our strengths reflected in this ranking."
Forty-eight programs were ranked this year, half of which are located outside the United States. The top three spots were taken by Harvard, IESE Business School (Barcelona), and IE Business School (Madrid), respectively, in the annual ranking.
Because the ranking is a guide for Latin Americans seeking an MBA beyond their borders — but likely to return to their region to do business — a school's connectivity to all things south of the border receives special consideration.
Published for 30 years, and arguably the most influential business magazine in Latin America outside of Mexico, AméricaEconomía began its global MBA rankings in 2001. The magazine, published monthly in Spanish and Portuguese editions (with an annual global reference guide in English), operates in 19 countries in Latin America and boasts over 327,000 readers and 700,000 unique online users per month.
AméricaEconomía's methodology gives equal weight to multicultural diversity, Latin American representation, student selectivity, international prestige, and curricular innovation.
