The Business Schools With the Most Faculty From Underrepresented Groups

A new survey released by the PhD Project shows the U.S. business schools with the most faculty members from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

The survey found that there are 22 faculty members from underrepresented groups at the business school at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro. This was the largest number of any business school in the United States. The business schools at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and Florida A&M University – two historically Black educational institutions – ranked second and third.

The business school at Rutgers University in New Jersey had 14 faculty members from underrepresented groups. This was the most of any predominantly White educational institution.

Other HBCUs in the Top 10 were Morgan State University in Baltimore, Texas Southern University in Houston, and North Carolina Central University in Durham. DePaul University in Chicago, Florida International University in Miami, and the University of Texas were also in the Top 10.

The PhD project was founded in 1994 by the KPMG Foundation with the goal of increasing the number of faulty members from underrepresented groups who teach at U.S. business schools. The organization provides scholarships for doctoral students from these groups to expand the pool of applicants for business faculty positions. Since its founding more than 1,000 minority business professors have earned their doctoral degrees with the support of the PhD Project.
