For the third time in the last four years, the College of Business Administration has been recognized in a Bloomberg BusinessWeek survey of undergraduate business programs. In its online The Best Undergrad B-Schools, Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranked the R. Kirk Landon Undergraduate School of Business at Florida International University (FIU) at 107th.
Among all public schools nationwide, the business school ranked 59th and held 18th position in the group with two-year programs. In the south, the college ranked 17th overall among all schools, including public and private institutions.
Excellence continues to be recognized.
“We are delighted to be on this prestigious list yet again,” said Joyce J. Elam, executive dean. “As we continue to strive toward being a world-class business school, we appreciate that our efforts are validated. The ranking is both affirming and inspiring.”
Recently, the college ranked #12 in undergraduate international business in U.S.News and World Report’s 2010 rankings and 11th on GetEducated.com’s list of affordable, regionally accredited online bachelor of business administration (BBA) programs nationwide.
In 2009, when BusinessWeek ranked schools by specialty in an online listing, the college was in the top 20 in the nation in two areas: 9th in operations management and 18th in accounting. Both FIU Business programs achieved the highest position among universities in Florida. In operations management, FIU’s program ranked ahead of University of Florida (28th), University of South Florida (62nd) and University of Miami (85th). The School of Accounting surpassed University of Florida at 44th, University of Miami at 57th and University of South Florida at 90th.
