Program Description

B.A. in International Business Administration

Major companies operate across national borders. Business relies on effective management and the ability to solve problems. Our programs in the heart of Paris teach you all the skills needed to succeed in a thriving, international environment.


International programs and careers

The Department of International Business Administration offers three majors and minors:

  • International Business Administration addresses all the functional areas of business within an international context. In addition to learning the concepts, models, and techniques associated with business, you’ll practice problem-solving, leadership, teaming, and effective communication skills. We emphasize global understanding, ethics, and responsibility.
  • International Finance is the application of economics within financial and non-financial institutions and markets. It concerns the optimal allocation of scarce financial assets, such as money, loans, bonds, stocks, and currencies. Our extensive program of finance courses prepares you to understand the economic and financial environment, and enables you to evaluate alternative investment opportunities, finance those opportunities, and manage optimal portfolios—all skills necessary for jobs in financial firms or investment banks.
  • Entrepreneurship teaches the basics of small business management and the activities required for planning and creating new enterprises within a single country and internationally. This generalist business degree is geared towards students who want to start their own business, work in a small business, work in a family business, or want to understand the management of innovation in any organization.


Exceptional career opportunities await our graduates.
