News & World Report
University's Diversity, Affordability and College
of Engineering Also Receive Recognition
San Diego State University’s undergraduate international business
program now ranks among the nation’s top 10, according to U.S.
News and World Report.
The SDSU major, offered jointly by SDSU’s College of Arts &
Letters and College of Business, has risen to an all-time high ranking
of seventh on the magazine’s “America’s Best Colleges
2005” list, up from 11th last year. The rankings are posted on
www.usnews.com today and will be on
newsstands next week.
Steven J. Sacco, chair of SDSU’s International Business program,
credits the program’s success to its combination of rigorous language,
study abroad and internship requirements, balanced with essential business
courses in a variety of disciplines.
“Our international business program has become a national model
for its innovation and quality, and it produces well-rounded graduates
who are ready to excel in today’s global environment,” Sacco
SDSU’s international business program, with more than 700 students,
is widely noted for offering the first transnational, triple-degree
programs in the country (one with universities in Mexico and Canada,
the other with universities in Mexico and Chile). The Institute for
International Education also has recognized the international business
program as the best study abroad program in the country – in any
area of study.
In addition, SDSU ranked 21st for least average debt among graduates,
and 24th for diversity. SDSU’s College of Engineering also ranks
among the top 100 such colleges at doctoral institutions, placing 99th.
