The rise of globalization has been accelerated by the growth and accessibility of the Internet, global communication, and social networks. Organizations must respond to the new interconnectedness and interdependency of business, culture, and society with a workforce prepared to excel in the global economy.
The International Business (IB) Major
The International Business major prepares future business leaders for the rapidly changing global economy. Our focus is on developing skills to effectively navigate through language and cultural issues in the business environment.
The major requires proficiency in a second language, a study abroad experience, coursework in international business, and coursework in a tandem functional area of business such as finance, marketing, economics, or human resources.
Because of the requirement for our majors to gain firsthand global experience, we have developed a wide range of study abroad opportunities, which are also available to all other business majors.
Our program boasts over 25 study abroad partnerships in 18 countries and all continents.
We have streamlined the course transfer issue by pre-approving the student and ensuring that the courses taken abroad will directly apply to their program of study.
