Clarification on CSOM Financial Times Ranking

The story on the Carroll School of Management's new Center for Asset Management that appeared in the Feb. 16 edition of Chronicle misidentified the CSOM department included in a recently published global survey of business and management programs.

CSOM's Accounting Department ranked seventh in the Financial Times' listing of the world's top 100 financial accountancy programs. The rankings were included in the Times' special section, "Global MBA Programs," which was based on data from business schools and their alumni who graduated three years ago.

Assoc. Prof. Theresa Hammond, the department chairwoman, says the impressive showing was not unexpected. "I don't think that ranking is surprising given the excellent teaching that we have in our MBA program as well as our excellent undergraduate program for accounting."
