    Well first and foremost, if you want to go into business marketing, then an international affairs/studies/relations major isn't going to do you any good at all really. If you don't mind me asking, what's your rational behind wanting this particular major with those career goals?

    But for whatever reason if you want to go into international affairs, then your list needs some amending.

    Of your list, American has a great program. Boston University has a relatively new school for international affairs which I've heard good things about. UCLA is pretty okay. Pitt is average. UCSD is fine. NYU is meh. I wouldn't recommend any of the other schools off your list (though I can't say I know anything about St. Joseph's).

    Here's my list of programs I think you need to look at if you're serious about Int'l Relations (in no particular order);

    American U
    Boston U
    Northeastern
    George Washington University
    Georgetown
    All of the Ivies
    William & Mary
    Johns Hopkins
    Tufts
    UMD
