TAMIU’s Sanchez School of Business Ranked Third in Nation for ‘Greatest Opportunity for Minority Students’

The Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) A. R. Sanchez, Jr. School of Business was ranked third in the nation for “Greatest Opportunity for Minority Students,”  and named to the Best Business Schools West listing among the nation’s 295 most outstanding business schools by the education services company, The Princeton Review.

TAMIU’s dean of the Sanchez School of Business Dr. Steve Sears said the Review’s positive appraisal of TAMIU is exciting.

“Our faculty and administration are excited to see their collective energies dedicated to Sanchez School of Business students recognized in this very powerful way.  This is an endorsement not only of our School’s business programs, but of our University’s founding mission,” Dr. Sears said.

The Princeton Review surveys 20,300 students attending the 295 business schools profiled in the book. Conducted during the 2012-13, 2011-12, and 2010-11 academic years, the student surveys were completed online.

Student respondents described TAMIU’s campus life as “very diverse” and said the Sanchez School of Business maintains “a strong international business focus in all offerings and a friendly feel…” and is “located in an area with a strong international trade industry.”

The publication noted TAMIU’s student/faculty ratio is 23:1 and both traditional and online programs are offered, providing students with a flexible academic experience. They also observed that 76% of faculty are minorities.  The School also has the distinction of offering an accredited online MBA program delivered in Spanish.

"The Best 295 Business Schools” is one of more than 150 Princeton Review books published by Random House. The line includes "The Best 169 Law Schools"  -- also published in October 2013. Other Princeton Review books include "The Best 167 Medical Schools," plus guides to graduate school admission exams and application essays.

The Princeton Review is also known for its guides to colleges and to standardized tests, its classroom and online test-prep courses, tutoring, and other education services.

Headquartered in Framingham, MA, it is not affiliated with Princeton University, and it is not a magazine.
