Miami MBA program cited for technology
Computerworld magazine's third annual Top Techno-MBA Survey ranks Miami University's Richard T. Farmer School of Business in the top 25 graduate business programs for technologically savvy future executives.
Computerworld surveyed 1,000 campus recruiters to find MBA schools that do the best job of preparing students to be technology leaders of tomorrow. The top programs were chosen for teaching students communication and technology skills along with business essentials.
Miami ranked 24th in the Computerworld survey, which included such schools as the University of Pennsylvania, Purdue University, Carnegie Mellon University and Georgia Institute of Technology. Northeastern University placed first.
Raymond Gorman, associate dean, said the Computerworld honor capped a week in which AT&T chairman and chief executive officer C. Michael Armstrong, a 1961 Miami alumnus, announced a $1 million endowment to create a professorship in technology and management.
"The Computerworld honor and the gift from Mike Armstrong should send a strong signal to prospective students and recruiters that our MBA program will continue to produce top quality business leaders ready for a networked society," he said.
Miami's business school provides 4,500 undergraduate students with 11 majors, 12 minors, and offers the MBA, master of accountancy and master of arts in economics. U.S. News & World Report recently ranked the school among the nation's top 50 undergraduate business programs.
