Undergraduate international business rises to #10.
A world-class faculty and close connections between industry partners and alumni resulted in four Gabelli School specialty areas being ranked among the Top 20 in the 2020-21 U.S. News and World Report Best Undergraduate Business Program rankings. The Gabelli School’s undergraduate business program also earned a Top 25 position in Poets&Quants 2020 rankings, which were announced last December.
The four Top 20 U.S. News rankings for 2020-21 were International Business (#10), Finance (#14), Entrepreneurship (#15), and Marketing (#20). Each specialty area saw rankings gains over last year, which stands out as an achievement amidst the disruption caused by the global pandemic, which has substantially challenged U.S. higher education.
Overall, the Gabelli School’s undergraduate business programs were ranked #67 by U.S. News and World Report for 2020-21.
“The Gabelli School aims to develop multi-talented, ethically oriented business leaders,” said Donna Rapaccioli, dean of the Gabelli School. “Access to industry driven curriculum, skilled career development staff, and competitive internships provides an academic experience that deeply aligns with the personal and professional goals of our students, and we’re proud to celebrate these successes.”
Scott Stern, BS ’21, in the undergraduate marketing program, commenting on his experience as a strategy intern with Glanbia Performance Nutrition, said, “My favorite thing about the Gabelli School is the amount of exposure that I have received to all aspects of the business world. With a strong understanding of how each function of a successful business operates, I had the confidence and knowledge to make suggestions that I believed would aid the company as a whole.”
Earlier this fall, Best Accounting Software ranked the Gabelli School #3 among the Top 50 colleges for BAs in accountancy based on the median earnings of graduates. In an average graduating Gabelli School class, nearly one-fifth of all seniors go on to jobs in the Big Four. The ranking was highlighted in Poets&Quants.
