Everyone from College Choice to College Factual ranks Rollins’ international business program among the best in the nation. Why? Our AACSB-accredited international business program blends the breadth of a top-ranked liberal arts education with the depth of an elite business education, giving our graduates a competitive edge in the job market.
Here are 10 of the ways Rollins is priming the next generation of global citizens and responsible leaders to do the business of the 21st century.
1. Elite Accreditation
The Rollins international business program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of the world’s business programs earn AACSB accreditation.
2. Expert Faculty
Great teachers are the foundation of a great education. At Rollins, you’ll learn from the very best. Our international business courses are taught by PhD faculty from around the globe, graduates of world-class institutions such as Cambridge, the London School of Economics, and Harvard. They have also worked for well-known companies like Bain, McKinsey, and Motorola and have published numerous books and articles.
3. World-Class Internships
Supporting Fair Trade organizations in Madrid. Marketing state-of-the-art health-care systems in Munich. Providing operational support in China. You’ll develop in-demand skills and experience through hands-on international internships.
4. Global Engagement
From China and India to France and Germany, you’ll have access to business-related field studies and semester-long programs across the globe. Through these immersive international experiences, you’ll hone communication and analytical skills and develop the ability to navigate foreign cultures and languages—credentials that are essential to success in today’s global business environment.
5. Meaningful Mentorship
Thanks to our 11:1 student-faculty ratio, you’ll receive personalized attention from our expert faculty inside and outside the classroom. At Rollins, our professors are true partners who help you pinpoint your personal and professional passions and help create a roadmap to achieving your aspirations.
6. Campus Involvement
From the Collegiate Entrepreneur’s Organization (CEO) to Net Impact, you’ll sharpen your business acumen through an array of student-run organizations and honor societies.
7. The World’s Top Jobs—Right Away
Our international business graduates enjoy immediate success. In fact, recent grads have landed positions with Apple, Airbnb, Dropbox, and Google, to name a few. Employers credit Rollins’ concurrent focus on academic rigor and skills garnered in the liberal arts for creating subject-matter experts adept at critical thinking, problem solving, and communication.
8. Prepared for Lifelong Leadership
For 20 years, the international business program at Rollins has been churning out global citizens who have grown into responsible leaders in their fields.

9. Earn Two Degrees in Four Years
Rollins’ dual-degree program allows you to earn a BA in international business from Rollins and a BS in international management from Germany’s Reutlingen University. In addition to earning two bachelor’s degrees in four years, the dual-degree program also allows you to develop fluency in German and earn international internship experience, giving you a competitive advantage in the global economy.
