The company evalu-ated over 1,000 universities and more than 20,000 master’s and M.B.A programs in 154 coun-tries using specific quantitative and qualitative criteria to select the 1,000 best business schools. Eduniversal divided the selected schools into five Palmes levels of Excellence based on the following criteria: accreditation, major rankings and member-ships in academic associations. Each program was evaluated by schools ranked with the same Palmes level given a dean’s vote. UTSA received three Palmes of Excellence and a 57% dean recommendation rate. UTSA made two regional ap-pearances and one international appearance in the 2019 Best Master’s and MBA Rankings. The M.S. in Business secured the No. 36 spot in General Management among programs in North America. “We are proud to be recog-nized internationally for our M.S. in Business program. Since the program began in 2016, we have worked hard to provide non-business majors with a solid foundation in business, create bonds that will last a lifetime within this cohort program and ultimately secure meaningful professional employment,” said Daniel Davied, assistant dean of graduate studies in the UTSA By Geoffrey OkoloStaff Writer/PaisanoOnline/ThePaisano@ThePaisano@PaisanoMediawww.Paisano-Online.comIndependent Student Newspaper for the University of Texas at San Antonio CommunityProvost discusses master plan and associated university costs with student government UTSA held the Involvement Fair on Sept. 6 under the Sombrilla on the Main Campus.
