The Princeton Review today named the Fisher International MBA program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies one of the "Best 300 Business Schools" in America. The education services company features the program in the new 2011 edition of its book, "The Best 300 Business Schools" (Random House / Princeton Review), on sale today.
Often ranked among the leading graduate international business programs in the nation, the Fisher International MBA program offers a unique focus on the new drivers of international business—chiefly, climate change, the evolution from managed to market economies, and the continued migration of rural populations to urban clusters. "The Fisher program at MIIS trains students to use core business tools like entrepreneurship, finance and marketing to succeed in a rapidly transforming economic environment," said Program Chair Bruce Paton. "Our graduates are leaders in launching and managing sustainable businesses in emerging and frontier markets around the world."
The Monterey Institute’s profile in the Princeton Review publication offers candid student testimonials to the unique international and interdisciplinary nature of the Fisher International MBA program:
- One American student calls it “the most international environment I have ever been in, and I have been living abroad since the end of high school. Half the students in every class are international students.”
- “There is a lot of interaction between business school students and the students of other schools.”
- The campus “is well-equipped. All classrooms have brand-new furniture, and most have multimedia equipment. The library is top-notch.”
“The Best 300 Business Schools” features profiles of the nation's top 300 business schools based on the results of an 80-question survey of 19,000 business school students. It also offers answers to practical questions about areas of specialization, student demographics, companies recruiting graduates and salaries graduates are making, and provides information on each school's admissions criteria, deadlines, tuition figures, and contact information.
As a result of being selected, the Monterey Institute’s Fisher International MBA program will also be featured on The Princeton Review’s Web site.
