School-library media student Roxanne Spray of Columbia says she will be ultra-prepared when she earns her master's degree in May.
"I really do believe that school library media specialists and programs are crucial to students' success and achievements," she says. "The professors, classes, and internships have helped me blend the theoretical and practical, so I'm ready to fill my role and be a leader and have a high-fucntioning media program on the first day of school."
Of the ranking, she says, "Certainly it's nice to have that kid of national validation for a program that I already knew was wonderful."
'Rigorous programming to challenge our students'
Moore School Dean Hildy Teegen says the 20-year milestone for international business reflects a continued commitment by the school to prepare students to compete in the global marketplace.
“We are so honored to again receive recognition for our outstanding international-business programming at the Moore School,” Teegen says. “Our best-in-class faculty and professional staff continue a long tradition of cutting-edge, rigorous programming to challenge our students as they prepare to take leading roles in creating value for organizations and society around the world.”
The Moore School has developed two international programs for graduate and undergraduate students, pending approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The new Master of International Business (MIB) would be a one-year interdisciplinary graduate program offered jointly with the College of Arts and Sciences (political science) and the School of Law.
The International Business and Chinese Enterprise (IBCE) would be a partnership program with the Chinese University of Hong Kong for undergraduates, including two years of study in Hong Kong and intensive language and cultural training.
