• Graduate Programs Named Among Top 15 in Global Management

4/1/2009

Suffolk University’s Sawyer Business School is one of 15 graduate schools of business named to The Princeton Review’s “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” in the category “global management.”

The designation appears in the April 2009 issue of Entrepreneur, the nation's leading publication for and about entrepreneurs, which lists the top 15 schools in alphabetical order.

“I am very pleased that the Sawyer Business School’s global management programs have been highly praised by our MBA students,” said William J. O’Neill, Jr., dean of the Sawyer Business School. “This honor addresses our commitment to prepare successful leaders in global business management. We are honored to have these accolades from our students. It affirms the importance we place on the study of global business.”

In addition to a global focus in its graduate programs -- including a specialized Global MBA degree and an MBA concentration -- the Sawyer Business School offers an undergraduate major and minor in global business. Because experiential learning is vital to the study of global business, the Business School regularly hosts global business leaders who speak to students about pertinent issues. The Business School also offers a worldwide series of global travel seminars. Both the international and American-born faculty bring their global research and work experiences into the classroom, enriching the students’ overall exposure to issues of global business.
 
The “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools,” created and compiled by The Princeton Review, the education services company, are reported in six categories: Accounting, Finance, General Management, Global Management, Marketing, and Operations. 

The Princeton Review compiled the lists from its national survey of 19,000 MBA students attending 296 business schools. The Princeton Review tallied the “Student Opinion Honors” lists based on students' assessments of how well (on a five-point scale) they felt their business school courses had prepared them to succeed in each of the six areas.  

Said Robert Franek, vice president and publisher, Princeton Review: "For nearly 20 years, our company has gathered student opinions about colleges, law and b-schools to give applicants feedback they can't find elsewhere: what the schools' own customers think of them.  We salute the business schools on these lists for the outstanding job they are doing both academically and professionally in preparing their students to apply their MBA training beyond the classroom to successful job searches and productive careers.  We know this will be particularly meaningful to applicants and MBA grads in these challenging economic times."
