Rollins takes the No. 22 spot nationwide for the best international business program.

College Factual recently ranked Rollins’ international business program No. 22 out of 143 programs in the U.S. This leading source of college data analytics and insights is highly focused on outcomes, helping students discover the right college, major, and career through national rankings, matching technology, and in-depth college profiles. 

“The faculty who serve the international business program have worked consistently to provide our students with the tools to be competitive in a changing but connected world,” says Emmanuel Kodzi, director of the international business program and associate professor of international business operations. “Our AACSB-accredited program is continually improving, and we are part of the Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Education.”

In addition to landing the No. 22 overall spot, Rollins’ international business program also came in No. 5 for most focused program and No. 13 for most popular. Respectively, these rankings indicate the percentage of students who have enrolled in the specific major and the schools that graduate the most students in the major.

“We are determined, along with the entire department of business,” says Kodzi, “to maintain the rigor, relevance, and thoughtfulness in our programming that our students and their families can be proud of.”

Fewer than 5 percent of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees are accredited. The business department at Rollins is one of them.

International business major Kamil Fadel ’17—who earned his master’s at Vanderbilt and is now an investment banking analyst at Deutsche Bank—turned down an Ivy League school to go to Rollins.

“At Rollins, an aggressive pursuit of your future goes the farthest,” says Fadel. “When you need a professor, they are there for you. The professors are so accomplished and accessible ... you have the ability to build relationships with true experts in their field.”
