Moore School International MBA program retains No. 1 ranking

March 12, 2019

The University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business announced today that its International MBA program is ranked No. 1 according to the latest U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools publication released on Tuesday, March 12. The International MBA program has been ranked in the top three for 30 consecutive years.

“We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition,” said Darla Moore School of Business Dean Peter Brews. “Ranking as the No. 1 International MBA in the nation is a testament to our outstanding faculty and the educational excellence of our program. The Moore School is committed to delivering exceptional business programming that not only prepares graduates for success but teaches them the value of teamwork, integrity and resilience so that they can better lead and make a difference in markets around the world.”

The 22-month International MBA program begins annually in July and features two tracks of study: the Global Track for in-country immersion where English is widely spoken or the Language Track for immersion in an international environment that includes language study.

The Moore School's part-time MBA program, one of the first of its kind when it was launched in 1970, has also been ranked No. 1 in the state and is among the top 25 programs in the country. The Professional MBA program is currently ranked at No. 22 for part-time MBA programs according to the 2020 U.S. News & World Report publication.

“We are also honored to have our Professional MBA program rank in the top 25 part-time MBA programs,” Brews said. “The innovative, multi-location classroom format, coupled with stellar teaching and networking opportunities, ensures that our graduates become the high-impact business leaders that companies need.”

The Professional MBA program offers a flexible, part-time format that allows professionals to complete their MBA degrees while they work. The program is typically completed in 28 months with start dates in both January and August. Regionally networked classrooms allow students to interact with peers across seven different locations, and on-demand access — real-time and delay — allows students to take classes on their own schedule.
