Said Milo Riverso, PhD, PE, President of Manhattan College, “We are incredibly pleased but not surprised that Manhattan College achieved this noteworthy distinction.  As a  college focused on quality education and development of the whole person, we pride ourselves on the strength of our faculty as teachers as well as researchers.  Our students are afforded the opportunities to work closely with their professors in each of our three schools – the Kakos School of Arts and Sciences, the O’Malley School of Business, and the School of Engineering – and we have an alumni network that is second to none.  As a graduate of Manhattan myself, I know well how vital the teacher/student relationship is and how it prepared me for my future roles in both academia and business.  Our graduates are leaders of industry, finance, engineering, and the liberal arts who developed a well-rounded skillset during their years at Manhattan.  This ranking is a testament to our devoted and highly-regarded faculty and a supportive and knowledgeable staff.”
