Georgia Tech Receives Top Ranking by Hispanic Business Magazine

Hispanic Business Magazine ranks the Georgia Institute of Technology the top engineering graduate school for 2008.

The magazine noted Georgia Tech’s reputation for being one of the nation’s premier research universities and the generosity of the Goizueta Foundation as factors for the ranking.

“The College of Engineering is extremely proud to be recognized by Hispanic Business Magazine for our academic excellence,” said Dean Don Giddens. “Our students benefit from a diverse student body as they prepare for the global job market.”

Funding from the Goizueta Foundation has helped create and expand many programs for both retaining and actively recruiting Hispanic students. Hispanics represent the fastest-growing ethnic population at Georgia Tech with a total of 888 students currently enrolled as of fall 2007. Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering has a Hispanic graduate enrollment of 58. This fall, Georgia Tech had its largest Hispanic freshman class ever with 126 students.

As a The Goizueta Foundation Fellow since 2007, I am very grateful for the generosity and support I have received. I am also humbled and enthusiastic for the opportunities to serve the Hispanic community this award provides.
