Requirements, International Business

As the world business community continues to move toward a global economy, the demand for people skilled in international business rises. Therefore, it is the objective for the international business major to provide students with an opportunity to enhance their business administration background with intensive knowledge and skills in international business.

This major is particularly useful for students pursuing careers in which knowledge of other cultures is beneficial. Students develop knowledge and skills in areas such as international relations, foreign languages, and the history, politics, language, and culture of particular geographic regions, as well as understanding the global business environment. The interdisciplinary approach exposes students to a variety of perspectives, which provides for a more well-rounded international education.
