brittany-torres-ecuador-detailPULLMAN, 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 15th overall and was seventh 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. The global learning requirement, developed eight years ago, established the college as a leader among business schools regarding development of global business leaders.

“Empowered with knowledge of diverse perspectives, our students will graduate prepared to communicate with people from a variety of backgrounds, having gained global experiences and grown in cultural understanding,” said Jessica Cassleman, assistant dean for international programs. “They will have competitive advantages in their careers and will develop strong business philosophies that will enable them to succeed in their jobs while making a greater impact in the world.”

“International experiences are especially powerful when we introduce students to their first glimpses of thinking globally,” said Chip Hunter, college dean. “Continuing to develop high quality programs will help us reach our goal of making the Carson College a destination of choice for students seeking an undergraduate business education in the Pacific Northwest.”
