Program overview

Students in the international business major develop the foundation necessary to understand business as well as political and cultural diversity. Proficiency in a foreign language is an integral part of the major. A co-major is chosen in one of the following areas: accounting, finance, management, management information systems, or marketing. This secondary area of interest provides students with the functional tools needed in their career.
