Business Grows at WPI
Momentum continues to build for the university’s business programs. Last fall, BusinessWeek ranked WPI’s part-time MBA program No. 1 in the nation; WPI was also ranked No. 1 for student satisfaction in the program. It’s the second time in two years that the university has made this top-10 list; in 2007, WPI was ranked ninth in the nation and No.1 in the Northeast.
The university is poised to continue flourishing, following the Board of Trustees’ vote in May to establish the WPI School of Business. Building on the myriad successes of the Department of Management, the new business school will be led by Mark Rice, the inaugural Dean of Business (see story, page 9), with a distinct focus on developing students who are innovative and entrepreneurial leaders, prepared for the global, technological world. Centered on programs that combine business acumen with technological, engineering, and scientific innovation, students will learn the practical aspects of creating, running, and growing a business.Maintained by firstname.lastname@example.org
