International Business

B.S.B.A. - International Business

In the global business world, a major in International Business helps students get prepared for careers with multinational corporations as well as careers overseas.

Students have a choice of a number of courses that emphasize the international/multinational/multicultural world that we live in today. Apart from the coursework, students are required to demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language and are encouraged to pursue an internship that exposes them to the international dimension of business. Study abroad options are available on a limited basis for interested students.
