For the 30th consecutive year, the University of South Carolina’s international Master of Business Administration is ranked in the top three in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual graduate school rankings, released Tuesday, rated the Darla Moore School of Business’s international MBA program No. 1. That offering was one of 53 USC graduate and professional programs ranked by the publication, which rated the university’s social psychology program No. 4 in the nation.
“Ranking as the No. 1 international MBA in the nation is a testament to our outstanding faculty and the educational excellence of our program,” said Peter Brews, Darla Moore School of Business, said in a news release. “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.”
USC’s part-time MBA program and its criminology program were both ranked No. 22 in the nation, while its public health program ranked No. 23. Its nursing master’s program ranked 30th, 17th among public universities, while its speech-language pathology program ranked No. 30.
Cheryl Addy, USC vice provost and dean of The Graduate School, said the university’s graduate programs include more than 6,200 students from 60-plus counties.
“We’re proud of our programs and the pivotal role they play in helping students achieve success," Addy said.
The rankings also recognized USC’s School of Law, ranking it 34th in trail advocacy — 11th among public law schools — and 40th in clinical law training — 19th among public law schools.
