The University of South Carolina’s international MBA program (IMBA) regained the top spot in the 2015 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools released Tuesday. The program at the Darla Moore School of Business has consistently ranked among the nation’s elite international business programs and was ranked third last year.

With its No.1 ranking, the Moore School’s program bested Thunderbird School of Management (No. 2), University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School (No. 3) and Harvard Business School (No. 4). The Moore School has ranked in the top three for 25 consecutive years.

Peter Brews, who was named dean of the Moore School in December, said the ranking validates the hard work done at the Moore School to keep its program at the leading edge of IMBA programs globally.

“The Moore School has over the past few years redesigned its international MBA program, and it is gratifying to receive such wonderful recognition for this effort,” Brews said. “I am grateful to all the faculty, staff and students who contributed to the ranking announced today. Being ranked No. 1 in both undergraduate and graduate International Business programs by U.S. News & World Report is an outstanding accolade to receive, and the Moore School will continue on its innovative path in international business education so that this stellar ranking is maintained.”

The U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings are based on peer and recruiter assessments, placement success, selectivity and salary surveys of graduates.

The IMBA Program has alumni and business partnerships in more than 80 countries spanning six continents. Among the distinctive features that sets the program apart is that students participate in an eight-month international immersion experience and engage in language immersion in the classroom and through international experience in Europe, Asia or Latin America. Additionally, students who specialize in global supply chain and operations management earn a Six Sigma Green Belt certificate.
