Both Congregation of the Mission sponsored universities are in the news for their impact on the world. Niagara University’s MBA programs are once again rated among the best in the world, according to rankings released by CEO Magazine. The GLOBE program at St. John’s University has for almost ten years given students real-life experience in offering real-life microloans to new entrepreneurs living in poverty around the world.
The St. John’s Globe Project is also collaborative thanks to the assistance by the Daughters of Charity, whose mission includes identifying those in their communities who want loans to start new small businesses, expand existing ones.

The British-based magazine listed NU’s MBA programs in its Top Tier of North American institutions, a distinction earned by only 72 colleges and universities in the United States, Canada and Mexico. In addition, the university’s online MBA program comes in at No. 36 in the magazine’s global rankings.
Results were based on the quality of an institution’s in-class experience and teaching faculty, international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty-to-student ratio, price, international exposure, work experience, professional development, gender parity and delivery methods.
According to its website, CEO Magazine uses a ranking system entirely geared and weighted to fact-based criteria to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review.
