Best schools for International Business major?

Which colleges are known for International Business?
How about for strong business programs in general?
If I plan on working in international business is it necessary to major in it during college?

    I'm not sure if USC Marshall the best, but when we visited USC last summer, the under admin of Marshall was very proud of its international business program - They have a unique international Cororate Environment Learning Program to expose undergrad students to business practices outside US by sending selective students to meet business executives in China/Korea/Japan. My kid was going - wow!!

    Believe it or not, the "other" USC -- University of South Carolina's Moore School of Business has had the top rated undergraduate International Business program for 12 years -- at least according to U.S. News and World Report.

    Marshall School of Business offers many opportunities for students who have international interests. The school has a myriad of unique cultural and educational opportunities abroad.

    Here are some programs you might investigate:

    Winslow-Maxwell Global Summer Internship Program
    International Exchange Program (IEP)
    International ExCEL Program

    Marshall also offers a Business/International Relations Joint Program (BAIR)

    The top 10% of admitted freshman to Marshall are invited to participate in the Global Leadership Program.

    For freshmen Marshall offers the only program that exposes freshmen to business practices outside the U.S. It features a special IB class and a trip abroad to meet with executives. Trips recently have been to Hong Kong, Taipei, Santiago and Dublin. It is the Marshall LINC Program. Here is a link to a student blog: USC Marshall Letter from around the world, 2008

    In the latest U.S. News Marshall International Business was ranked #5.

    USC also offers study abroad programs in 27 countries. The university also honors students who have excelled both home and abroad as Global Scholars. (Selective)

    The University of South Carolina's undergraduate International Business program has been ranked #1 in the country for over a decade. Their Masters in International Business program has been continuously ranked at either #1 or #2 for the past 20 years.

    The undergraduate program is the only one I can speak of as far as experience goes, but this program is extremely competitive, accepting approximately 50-60 people per year.
