Rollins’ international business program was once again ranked as one of the best in the nation by College Factual, a leading source of college data analytics devoted to helping students find the right college, major, and career. The College was ranked No. 26 out of 143 programs, securing a spot in the top 15 percent of all international business programs in the United States.

“The business faculty and specifically the faculty teaching in the international business major are very honored by this national recognition,” says business professor Marc Fetscherin. “Since the creation of the INB major over 20 years ago, the faculty and administration have worked hard to establish a world-class, rigorous, and innovative program.”

International business and political science double major Pierce Neinken ’06 ’08MBA—who’s been Airbnb’s global portfolio manager since 2015—credits Rollins’ small class sizes and close-knit relationships for his success in the “sharing economy,” which didn’t even exist a decade ago.

“At Rollins, we were always working to find solutions to problems in small groups,” says Neinken. “I’d be with students from all over the world, every one of them bringing different perspectives. That experience has been beneficial throughout my career—working together to make the world better.”

Additionally, Rollins’ international business program ranked No. 2 in Florida out of 11 statewide programs. Among the criteria considered were postgraduate earnings along with retention and graduation rates.

“The international business major at Rollins blends the breadth of liberal arts courses with the depth of business courses,” says Fetscherin. “We require all students to do an international internship and have a global experience, which can consist of a Rollins field trip, a semester abroad, or an internship abroad.”
