Bachelor of Science in International Business

The International Business interdisciplinary degree equips students with cultural and language knowledge to complement an intensive background in business. The degree emphasizes management, marketing, and finance. Students are required to study abroad as part of this program. The combination of courses from business, modern languages, economics, mathematics, political science, and international cultures/religions creates a dynamic degree for students interested in business and international travel. Students in this program graduate with a background in the international aspects of economics and business with a proficiency in a second language, with special emphasis on the concepts of management, marketing, and finance.
