The undergraduate international business program at FIU Business has been ranked No. 2 in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report in its annual Best Colleges report, released in September. This is the third consecutive year that U.S. News has ranked FIU Business No. 2, placing it in the top 5 along with Georgetown University, New York University and the University of California – Berkeley.
"We are thrilled to see the FIU Business undergraduate international business program ranked No. 2 in the U.S. for the third consecutive year," said William Hardin, interim dean at FIU Business. "This accomplishment is a testament to the commitment of our faculty, staff and students across disciplines who have helped build our reputation as a world leader in international business education and research."
In the spring of 2021, the International MBA program at FIU Business was ranked No. 3 in the U.S. by U.S. News, also alongside some of the world's top universities. The No. 3 ranking is up from No. 8 in 2020.
The international business rankings are based on a school having a reputation for excellence in the area. In July 2020, two additional FIU Business professors were inducted as Academy of International Business (AIB) fellows, a select group of distinguished scholars who have been recognized for their outstanding contributions to the international business field. This brings to six the number of active AIB fellows whose main affiliation is Florida International University — more than any other university worldwide.
FIU Business has been selected as the host institution for the 2022 Annual Meeting of AIB, which is widely recognized as the top conference in the field of international business. The college is also home to a Center for International Business Education and Research, one of just 15 such centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education nationwide.
