The University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business earned the top spot for its International MBA program in the latest U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Graduate Schools” publication.
“It is gratifying that the 2017 U.S. News and World Report ranking has once again recognized the Darla Moore School of Business as our country’s top International MBA program. The Moore School continually innovates our international business programs to prepare students for the challenges and dynamics of international markets today and in the future,” said Moore School Dean Peter Brews.
The rankings, released Tuesday, mark the 28th year in which the International MBA program has been ranked in the top three in the nation. The Moore School’s Professional MBA program also made the list of top graduate programs, ranking 16th among all schools and 11th among public universities.
Brews credits the continued success of the International MBA program to its commitment to immersing students in a globally focused curriculum as well as its focus on both the hard and soft skills needed to compete in world markets.
“This unique multi-location program effectively develops high-impact business leaders and creates a network of strong and growing companies across the Carolinas.” Brews said.
In all, USC is home to 47 nationally ranked graduate and undergraduate programs, including 17 in health related fields.
Several other graduate programs excelled in previously ranked categories in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual guide, including social psychology (4), school library media (5), library and information studies (18), nuclear engineering (20), public health (23) and criminology (25).
