Florida State University’s (FSU) College of Business was rated among the best in America across several departments in Monday’s release of the U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges 2023 Guidebook.” In totality, four programs within the college ranked inside the top twenty-five of their respective field.
The Dr. William T. Hold/The National Alliance Program in Risk Management and Insurance achieved a third overall ranking among all universities that offer it, while the real estate program climbed to fifth among public schools.
Meanwhile, the College of Business earned a ranking of twentieth among public schools in marketing, while accounting moved up three spots to twenty-first.
“We continue to place well in extremely competitive fields,” said Michael Hartline, dean of the College of Business. “We expect even greater achievements ahead and look forward to the heightened visibility our new showcase facility will provide.”
Later this year the university will break ground on Legacy Hall, its new $120 million College of Business facility that will be FSU’s largest academic space to date and is being developed as part of the ongoing construction for its southeast gateway initiative.
FSU’s business acumen extended to its graduate programs as well, with its MBA Specialty in Business Analytics and MBA Specialty in Real Estate both ranked ninth nationwide in their respective degree paths.
Furthermore, the Master’s degree in Management Information Systems and Master’s degree in Risk Management and Insurance programs both ranked eleventh.
The college’s good rating recognition is consistent with that of the university, which is ranked nineteenth among national public institutions. 2022-23 marks the fourth consecutive top-twenty ranking for FSU.
“These rankings reflect total excellence across the university,” said President Richard McCullough. “We’re competing at the highest levels with the best universities in the world, and our goal is to continue to rise to the Top 15 and beyond.”
