International Business Major

This interdisciplinary major requires a strong foundation of language and culture, history, geography, and political science along with the business core classes.

As an international business student, you must demonstrate proficiency in a language other than your own. This can be can be demonstrated by college credit or equivalent—including certification exam credit—for a language through the intermediate level (second year, college level).

You will also select a series of courses focused on a region of the world—Africa, Asia, Europe, or Latin America—or a topical area such as cultural, political, religion, or economic studies.

International Business students are also strongly encouraged to participate in a semester of study abroad or other international experience to complement in-class learning.

By combining language proficiency; cultural, historical, and political understanding; and international experience with the international business core, you will be prepared for success in a number of fields after graduation.
