International business program ranked No.1 for 20th consecutive year

For the 20th consecutive year, USC’s undergraduate international business program is No. 1 out of public universities in the United States. 

“It is a distinct honor that the Darla Moore School of Business has been recognized for having the number one undergraduate International Business program for 20 consecutive years,” said Moore School dean Peter Brews. “This continuity of excellence reflects highly on our program, faculty, staff and students over the past two decades.”

The ranking from U.S. News & World Report cited small class sizes, a maximum of 160 international business majors and group events such as a haunted house and a camping trip. 

“The major also does a really good job of cultivating a relationship between its students,” said fourth-year international business, human resources, management and marketing student Hannah Bowman. “It just sets us up for a lot of networking and professional opportunities that we might not get if we weren’t IB majors.”

Fourth-year international business and finance student Jordan Kelly and Bowman both emphasized the quality of faculty working with international business students. 

“They’ve been really, really good about cultivating such a wide group of amazing professors that know a lot, and they each are kind of specialized in different things,” Bowman said. “You get to experience such different things at a such high level.”

In March, the Darla Moore School of Business MBA program received another No. 1 ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools publication.
