Florida International University’s (FIU) College of Business international business programs remain academic leaders, with the undergraduate program ranking seventh in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 edition of Best Colleges.
“This ranking speaks to the recognition of our programs being of high quality in business education,” said William Newburry, chair of the Department of Management & International Business. “Our programs are well-known and highly respected and our faculty includes leaders in virtually all the top international business organizations for academics.”
The College of Business’ international business program has been among the top 20 in U.S. News’ well-regarded survey for more than a decade. And 2018 marks the fourth time in a row and the fifth time in six years that the college has ranked within the Top 10 in international business. In 2017 the program ranked 5th, in 2016 it was 6th, in 2015 the program was 8th, and in 2013 it held the 10th spot.
Leader in the development of global business leaders.
FIU’s International Business program features a multi-disciplinary curriculum in which students take courses in international business, regional studies, and functional areas. It integrates seminar-style classes, study abroad opportunities and professional development activities.
“For students, our faculty with extensive international business expertise and experience means they’re going to get a better education,” said Newburry. “Also, being in Miami is a big plus because it’s inherently an international market. The locational advantage is a good fit with our faculty’s capabilities.”
Rankings for the best undergraduate business programs are based on a peer assessment survey last conducted in spring 2017. To appear on this survey, programs must be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
