Businessweek has not yet released the results of all its subject rankings. This year, the magazine is going for a slow burn, posting a “Top 10” list of one business discipline each week on its web site. The full listing of how all 124 undergraduate schools stack up in all fields will be released in a few weeks, the editors have said.

Our seventh-place ranking in international business represents a gain of four spots from 2012 and reflects Dean Donna Rapaccioli’s ongoing effort to intensify the global nature of the Gabelli School curriculum.

What are some of the results of that campaign? Consider these examples:

  • Enhancements to the Gabelli School program in London to enable accounting, marketing and finance students to take advanced coursework in their fields, making it easier to study abroad for a full semester.
  • Additional scholarship support for students who want to study overseas, including three John S. Wilcha travel grants for study anywhere in the world, and three London grants from KPMG.
  • More study tours tied to full-semester courses, such as a spring 2013 class on finance in Brazil that featured a one-week tour to Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
  • Encouragement for all faculty to introduce new international content and examples into the courses they deliver here at Rose Hill.
