"The College of Business provides its students with a rich experience that mirrors the global world in which they will live and work," said Nancy Hayes, dean of the College of Business. "Recent surveys and focus groups with College of Business alumni have indicated they feel better prepared for the diversity in today's workplaces."

To compile the rankings, opportunities for minority students were evaluated based on the percentage of students from minority groups; percentage of faculty from minority groups; student assessment of resources for minority students; student assessment of how supportive the culture is of minority students; and student assessment of whether fellow students are ethnically and racially diverse.

According to the Princeton Review report, which is based on data from the 2007-08 academic year, 35 percent of SF State's MBA faculty were minorities, 38 percent of students were from underrepresented minorities, with another 33 percent of students coming from other countries. 

SF State's MBA programs are housed at the Downtown Campus in the Westfield San Francisco Centre. For more information about SF State's MBA programs, visit http://mba.sfsu.edu
