UofSC’s international business program earns top ranking

The undergraduate international business program at the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business continues to top the U.S. News and World Report's “Best Colleges” list.

The 2016 edition of the publication was released Wednesday (Sept. 9) and the undergraduate international business program continues an unbroken streak of 17 straight years ranked in the No. 1 spot. In March, the Moore School’s International MBA program was ranked No. 1 in international business. 

“It is gratifying that the Darla Moore School of Business has retained its ranking as the nation’s top undergraduate international business program," said Dean Peter Brews. "Being recognized as No. 1 by peer institutions in both undergraduate and graduate international business speaks to the high quality and depth of our programs, faculty and students. The Moore School also partners with more than 50 leading international universities to provide our students with intensive international learning opportunities. Armed with this preparation, our students use the international perspectives they gain and the cross-cultural learning they experience to take their place as leaders in the global marketplace." 

The school's Insurance and Risk Management program was ranked No. 11 nationally. "I am also pleased our Insurance and Risk Management program ranked No. 11, placing us among the best in the country in this domain," Brews said.  "In addition to our strengths in international business and risk management, the Moore School offers many outstanding programs of study across all the major functions of business, producing business-ready graduates well prepared for 21st century high-value jobs."

The Best Colleges report places UofSC Columbia's overall ranking at No. 47 among all national public universities — up from No. 55 last year.

USC Aiken was ranked the best regional public college in the South, and USC Upstate was ranked No. 3 for regional public colleges. Upstate also ranked as the third-best regional college for veterans. USC Beaufort was ranked No. 6 among public colleges in the region. 

The guide gave UofSC additional accolades for its first-year experience program, its living and learning communities and its commitment to student veterans
