Mānoa’s Shidler College of Business was ranked 12th in international business in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2010 edition of America’s Best Colleges, up from 19th place in 2009. Shidler is listed with elite schools such as the University of Pennsylvania, University of Southern California, University of Michigan, and U.C. Berkeley, and ahead of other notable schools such as Northeastern University and George Washington University. Of the public schools ranked in international business, Shidler is ranked 9th on the list.

“We are extremely pleased at the progress we have made over the past few years to develop our undergraduate program,” says Dean V. Vance Roley. “Our sharp rise in the ranking can be attributed in part to the combined efforts of our faculty, staff and accomplished alumni throughout the world in helping us develop quality programs and real world experiences so our students can compete on a global scale.”

Roley added, “In the past few years, we’ve created a new entrepreneurship major, developed our internship and career placement program, provided numerous study abroad opportunities, added a freshmen scholars pre-business program, increased travel scholarships and enhanced our curriculum in international business with focus on the Asia-Pacific region.”
