College’s International Business Program Ranks No. 2 in Nation

The School of Business at the College of Charleston remains a top competitor in the world of higher education. The School’s international business undergraduate program earned the No. 2 spot on the Schools.com list, Best Colleges for International Business Degree Programs, preceding Georgetown University and the University of South Carolina.

The four-year colleges on the list were ranked based on a variety of factors, including accessibility, graduation rate, size of program and student-to-faculty ratio.

One of only a few international business degree programs in the Southeast, the nationally renowned program provides students with a multi-dimensional and applied-learning perspective. International business students at the College have one-of-a-kind resources available to them, including the Global Resource Center and instruction from world-class faculty who helped the School rank No. 1 in the world for the most Certified Global Business Professionals.

“This recognition exemplifies the dynamic global learning programming we have here at the School of Business,” says Alan T. Shao, dean of the School of Business. “It is also a culmination of our faculty’s dedication to preparing ready-to-work business leaders of tomorrow for a global market, and our students’ commitment to excellence.”

Students in the program must minor in a foreign language, regional or global area of study. Additionally, they must study abroad for some portion of their degree. Upon completing the program, graduates are able to successfully navigate a globally competitive business world.
