(Media-Newswire.com) – Expansión, Mexico’s leading business magazine, has included Mays Business School at Texas A&M in its 2008 rankings of best global MBA programs for Mexicans. Mays makes the list at 10th in the nation for U.S. public schools, and 23rd in the U.S. among public and private institutions. Mays placed 43rd globally in this ranking.

Sixty schools worldwide were listed in the current Expansión rankings, which appeared in a special business education edition of the publication on May 12. The rankings were determined by:

* academic quality as assessed by students’ average GMAT score (Mays’ average GMAT score increased by 20 points from 2007 to 2008)

* previous rankings by London’s Financial Times (Mays was ranked 61st globally in 2008)

* MBA’s salary after graduation

* percent of international students in the program

* number of countries represented

This is the first year Mays was invited to participate in these rankings. Only two other schools in the state made the list: University of Texas and Rice University, ranked 27th and 48th in the world, respectively.

“We’re always seeking to build diversity within our pool of international MBA students,” said Wendy Flynn, director of admissions for the Mays MBA program. “The results of this survey will certainly help us build our reputation and presence in Mexico, and possibly in Central and South America.”
