Fordham Following on the school’s overall undergraduate ranking of No. 40, the Gabelli School of Business has placed seventh nationwide in international business in Bloomberg Businessweek’s subject rankings.
The school’s ranking in international business represents a gain of four spots from 2012, and reflects the ongoing effort of Donna Rapaccioli, Ph.D., the school’s dean, to intensify the global nature of the Gabelli School curriculum.
The results of that campaign include:
—Enhancements to the Gabelli School program in London to enable accounting, marketing and finance students to take advanced coursework in their fields, making it easier to study abroad for a full semester.
—Additional scholarship support for students who want to study overseas, including three John S. Wilcha travel grants for study anywhere in the world, and three London grants from KPMG.
—More study tours tied to full-semester courses, such as a spring 2013 class on finance in Brazil that featured a one-week tour to Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
—Encouragement for all faculty to introduce new international content and examples into the courses they deliver at Rose Hill.
