The winning streak continues for the international business program at the University of Missouri–St. Louis.

For the 16th consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranked the College of Business Administration program in the top 25. UMSL earned a No. 20 national ranking, up four spots from the previous year.

“Year after year, UMSL offers exceptional education and programs to bright, globally minded students,” said Joe Rottman, associate dean and director of the International Business Institute. “Being recognized as one of the best colleges for international business for the past 16 years is a testament to the world-class faculty and staff who fully prepare students for their careers and lives in an increasingly global society.”

During the 16-year reign, UMSL awarded 994 international business degrees and hosted 475 study abroad trips. The program has also ranked eighth nationally for faculty research productivity and received $3.5 million in research grants.

“UMSL’s international business program just keeps getting better,” Dean of the College of Business Administration Charlie Hoffman said. “We are honored to receive these high marks, which reflect the success of our graduates and the dedication of our talented UMSL team. We look forward to advancing the next generation of graduates who will go on to transform our world.”
