AméricaEconomía, the leading business magazine in Latin America, has released its 2009 ranking of business schools covering exceptional graduate programs globally and in Latin America. FIU’s Chapman Graduate School placed 20th on the global list above MBA programs at institutions such as University of Chicago, Tulane, Georgetown, Emory, Michigan and University of Miami. Also, it ranked 14th in the United States. AméricaEconomía has ranked Florida International University’s full-time International MBA program every year since 2004.
In addition to the listing, the article quotes Joyce J. Elam, executive dean of the College of Business Administration. In her comments, Elam emphasizes that the future will bring changes for business students, noting that an MBA won’t be sufficient. She points out that they will need a greater focus on matters such as leadership and corporate governance to enable them to understand their responsibility to all stakeholders.
Within its list of the top ten Latin American schools, eight of the institutions are partners in the Chapman School’s global Dual Degree Network. Through the Dual Degree program, students in programs at the partner schools can earn two graduate degrees, one from their home institution and one from FIU.
