biz-80PULLMAN, Wash. – The Washington State University Carson College of Business is one of the best 100 business schools in the nation as noted by recent U.S. News & World Report rankings.

The undergraduate international business program ranked 22nd overall and was 13th among public national universities. This continues a tradition of excellence in international business of more than 25 years. The college is home to WSU’s strongest study abroad program, and its global learning requirement, developed seven years ago, established the college as a leader among business schools regarding development of global business leaders.

“Our undergraduate international business program offers faculty-led programs in eight countries, helping our students develop globally competitive business acumen,” said Darrel Muehling, chair of the marketing and international business department. “Graduates are well prepared to become visionary business leaders who possess a broad global perspective and a better understanding of the cultural and social interfaces of the business world.”

“The 2015 rankings reflect our ongoing investment in developing global business leaders and creating value through research and scholarship,” said David A. Whidbee, interim dean. “The Carson College of Business will continue to positively impact the business and academic communities of Washington state, the region and the world through strategic investments in facilities, technology and faculty to prepare our students for success.”
