Anaheim University Ranks #1 in Japan's Nikkei BP MBA Rankings

TOKYO--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Anaheim University's MBA programs soared up the list in this year's key Nikkei Business Publications annual rankings to take the number 1 position in Japan. In what is a culmination of upward trends for the California-based university over the last 6 years, Anaheim University's Akio Morita School of Business, named in honor of the late Sony Founder, was placed 1st in 3 major categories, leading to its number 1 ranking.

"It is an honor to see Anaheim University recognized as a leading business school in Asia with our Online MBA and Online Green MBA enrolling business professionals from over 40 countries worldwide. As all of our programs are taught by American professors entirely in English, we recruit largely from the foreign ex-pat community working mostly in Fortune 500 companies. We are very pleased to have made another great leap forward with our MBA programs being recognized for having the finest quality faculty in the nation. I am extremely proud of our faculty who were ranked #1 for their academic credentials combined with business expertise," stated Dr. Andrew Honeycutt, Dean of the School of Business, who earned his Doctorate in Business Administration from Harvard's prestigious Business School.

The Nikkei BP University and Graduate School Guide looks at over 140 institutions and 68 graduate business schools that operate programs in Japan. As Japan's leading Business and Economic publisher, the Nikkei BP rankings are a major source of information to anyone wanting to get an in-depth look at how successful and well recognized a particular university is.

Scoring a perfect 100% in all 3 of its categories, Anaheim was able to build on having been placed 2nd in 2004 for "Global MBA Programs" by the English press in Japan, and outranked its rivals in the Japanese press to move to the top of the board this year.
