International Business

  • Program Overview

    The most significant transformation that the world economy has experienced during the last 60+ years has been the internationalization of business. International business activity is predicted to continue increasing in the future. The International Business program is a multidisciplinary program intended to provide the student with an opportunity to develop the expertise necessary to participate in complex and dynamic global business activities.

    The curriculum is both exciting and interesting as it is a combination of all the functional areas of business; the international dimension of each of the functional areas of business; and the social science disciplines, such as economics, geography, history, political science, and foreign languages and culture. As a result of the flexibility and amount of free electives provided in the program, a student may develop a proficiency in a particular foreign language as well as expertise in a particular geographical area.

    In addition, the program presents the student with the opportunity to participate in study abroad programs, foreign study tours, international internships, as well as cooperative education programs. The program is designed to prepare graduates for either graduate study in a business discipline, especially International Business, or direct entry into the work force with companies doing business internationally, government agencies, or international organizations.
