    San Diego State University’s College of Business Administration, already widely-recognized as a top-rated business school, said it was named as one of the top MBA schools in the United States by Professional Women’s Magazine in its 2014 Best of the Best lists for the second year in a row.

    The magazine also recognized SDSU among its top colleges and universities.

    The magazine said the stated goal of the evaluations is to “encourage active outreach and diversity policies among corporations and government agencies.”

    Dr. Gangaram Singh, interim dean at the College of Business Administration, said the recognition for two consecutive years put the school in the same category as Cornell, Harvard, UCLA, the University of Chicago, and Yale.

    “Our outstanding outreach and diversity efforts have provided many women, underserved and first-generation students with the education they needed to help them launch their successful business careers,” Singh said.

    The college was also named among the top MBA programs in the nation by BloombergBusinessweek; Forbes; Military Times and U.S. News and World Report, the university said.
