“The undergraduate international business program offers faculty-led programs in 12 countries, international business internships in five countries and exchange programs in six countries,” said Chip Hunter, college dean. “Great public land-grant universities like WSU emphasize transformational student experiences and push the frontiers of knowledge. Our U.S. News & World Report ranking confirms we represent the best of higher education in America.”
