Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program Offerings

The international business major is designed to provide students with a multidisciplinary degree focused on the international business world. Students gain knowledge and skills to prepare them for the global environment of business.

To facilitate their career, a concentration is encouraged, but not required, in a functional area of business such as marketing or finance. Study abroad is a highly recommended and integral part of the major. Graduates are well prepared for entry-level positions in the discipline of focus and often pursue careers with corporations with international divisions or aspirations. Some work for nonprofits, governments, or start their own businesses. Most begin their careers in a U.S.-based organization that does business around the world.

Graduates will be able to:

  • Identify contemporary, global macro-environmental trends and issues, and describe opportunities and threats they present to businesses
  • Demonstrate the ability to conceptualize business from a global perspective
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate in a second language
