U.S. News and World Report Ranks Creighton University’s Finance Department Among Nation’s Top 25: School Keeps Company with Other Elite Programs

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) June 01, 2011

Creighton University has been ranked the number 21 business school for finance by U.S. News & World Report, alongside the most stellar academic institutions in the realms of business and finance nationwide.

The recently published 2011 listing, in which colleges and universities are subject to a variety of stringent criteria--including peer assessment, placement success, mean starting salary and bonus, and mean GMAT scores--names Creighton’s business programs in finance among the top 25 in the U.S. for the first time.

Creighton University is ranked the number-one university in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report for 2011 and has been ranked at or near the top of the magazine's "America's Best Colleges" edition for 24 straight years.

The recognition of Creighton’s finance department is especially important for the university’s campus-based and online Master’s in Security Analysis and Portfolio Management program, a practitioner-oriented program that provides in-depth knowledge essential for those seeking to advance their career in the competitive world of finance and investments. The U.S. News & World Report ranking further distinguishes Creighton’s MSAPM program, which is one of only 118 universities worldwide that has earned the distinction of being a Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) Program Partner. All of the faculty who teach in the program hold the CFA designation.

Creighton’s ranking reflects the University’s notable record of success over its 130-year history and affirms Creighton’s long-established tradition of academic excellence where students and faculty embrace a culture of scholarly achievement in a community that fosters individual growth and accomplishment.
