International Business

Director Monica Snow

This major prepares students for careers in international business. The program has an applied learning orientation that includes foreign language courses and an internship in an area of international business. The degree is interdisciplinary, combining courses in culture, foreign language, and international business. A combination of international courses is taken in each functional area of business, including marketing, accountancy, finance, management, and economics.

The international business major should be selected by students who want a broad background and applied experiences for administrative careers that require competency in language, culture, and international business operations. In addition, the major provides a firm grounding in the management of organizational and institutional resources and in international issues.

Through the required internship, the major provides the opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom to real-life situations. The major also encourages study abroad opportunities to hone foreign language skills and international trade competencies.

Applied modern language courses are offered in Spanish, French, and German through the Department of Modern Languages.
