Thursday, March 14, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (March 14, 2013) – In its 2014 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” released March 12, 2013, U.S. News & World Report ranked four Saint Joseph’s University Haub School of Business (HSB) disciplines among its “Top 25”.

Online graduate business ranked No. 18, the Executive MBA ranked No. 19, Finance ranked No. 19, Marketing ranked No. 23. The Haub School's professional MBA program ranked No. 79 and earned recognition as the No. 2 program in Philadelphia.

“The reputation of the Haub School’s graduate business programs allow us to attract and retain highly qualified faculty who create dynamic learning environments,” explains Stephen Porth, Ph.D. ’80, associate dean and executive director of graduate programs. “The school’s rankings and growing international reputation are products of our faculty, and impressive student and alumni achievements.”

In 2011, the MBA curriculum was revamped in response to an evolving job market and an increased student need for flexibility. The Haub School's strength in business ethics and its foundation in the Jesuit mission have continued to pervade all courses as introductions to the curriculum provide students with relevant content and skills.

In the 2013 ranking, U.S. News lauds the recent changes to the Haub School's MBA curriculum: "The faculty, in consultation with various advisors, has developed courses encompassing creative thinking, effective communication, application of technology, and fresh ways to approach business."

The largest Jesuit undergraduate business school in the country, the Haub School is an international AACSB-accredited institution in business and accounting, offering programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and executive master’s levels. The school was named one of the nation’s top business schools in Princeton Review’s “The Best 294 Business Schools”; included among Bloomberg BusinessWeek's "Best Undergraduate Business Schools"; ranked No. 12 in the nation for infusing ethics in the curricula by The Aspen Institute; and, for eight consecutive years, has been recognized by Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society for AACSB with either the Gold, Silver or Bronze Chapter Award.
