Best B-schools for Hispanics

Not to seem parochial about it, but why no Socal institutions? Stanford and Berkeley are the only California schools to make it onto Hispanic Business magazine's list of 20 (best medical, law and engineering schools are also included in the magazine's September issue). Stanford University's Graduate School of Business tops this year's Top 10 Business Schools, a spot it has held for the last two years. "In the last 15 years, we have deliberately increased the diversity in our students. What we didn't have was a curriculum that leveraged that diversity to the fullest," says Derrick Bolton, director of MBA admissions at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. I haven’t the foggiest idea what that means, but he must be doing something right to gain HB’s attention. Here’s more:

Stanford's business school also recruits Hispanic students through the Charles P. Bonini Partnership for Diversity Fellowship program. Before entering the MBA program, Bonini Fellows are placed in nine- to 12-month internships with participating corporate partners, which have included Eli Lilly and General Motors. Students are paid competitive salaries, and receive full-tuition grants for two years at the business school. This fall, Stanford's business school will launch its new MBA curriculum, which allows each student to take courses that best match their background and experience.

Here's the list:

1) Stanford University
2) University of Texas at Austin
3) Columbia University
4) University of Miami
5) University of California, Berkeley
6) Emory University
7) Dartmouth College
8) Yale University
9) Duke University
10) Florida International University
11) New York University
12) University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill
13) University of New Mexico
14) University of Arizona
15) Rollins College
16) Ohio State University
17) University of Central Florida
18) University of Notre Dame
19) University of Rochester
20) Texas Christian University
