2014 Best Business Schools for Hispanics

HispanicBusiness recently announced the 2014 ranking of the best business schools for diversity practices. The rankings look at Hispanic graduate enrollment, full-time Hispanic faculty in the MBA programs, and the percent of MBA degrees earned by Hispanics.

According to the editors, enrollment is just one piece of the puzzle though. Some schools on this list do have relatively lower Hispanic enrollment rates than schools that didn’t make the list, but HispanicBusiness is also looking at faculty numbers and programs to attract and retain Hispanic students. The schools appearing on this list are well-rounded, say the editors, and have made notable efforts to engage the Hispanic community.
