‘Computerworld’ singles out Miami MBA program

By Karah Woesner
Computerworld magazine’s third annual Top Techno-MBA Survey ranks the 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 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.
