Last week, the annual Bloomberg BusinessWeek survey ranked Howard University’s School of Business 33 on its list of the nation’s top performing full-time business school programs.
The Howard University School of Business MBA program features a variety of traditional business school courses, a Global Trilateral MBA Certificate Program and an online Executive MBA geared toward working professionals.
The news comes at a time when Howard has been making big moves for its business students. Earlier this year, the university opened a new lab for finance students thanks to a generous donation from Howard alum Wendell Mackey, CFA. The Bloomberg Terminal is a software platform that provides real-time and historical data, market moving news and analytics to help leading business and financial professionals worldwide make better informed investment decisions.
“We are thrilled to partner with Howard University and offer its students and professors access to the same market-moving news and data relied on by leading business and financial professionals around the globe,” said Erika Irish Brown, then-Bloomberg Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion. “We hope that Bloomberg Finance Lab’s training and coursework will give Howard students seeking careers in financial services an additional competitive edge, while also familiarizing Howard’s computer science students with the technology underlying the Bloomberg Terminal.”
The survey, which was produced 30 years ago, has a newly improved ranking methodology includes surveys with students, alumni, and recruiters. Business schools received an overall ranking and were ranked based on several specific components including compensation, learning, networking and entrepreneurship. Howard University received highest marks in networking and learning.
