Florida State University is rated one of the most efficient national universities by U.S. News & World Report, and Forbes and Kiplinger list Florida State among its Best College Values, an assessment of quality and economic factors, such as admission and graduation rates, tuition cost and debt at graduation.

The College of Business is proud of its reputation worldwide. Our internationally acclaimed faculty members consistently receive rankings and recognition for research productivity and relevance. They often serve as visiting professors and lecturers at other prestigious institutions. The college also is well-known for the individual attention given to its diverse student body.
