About the Bachelor of Science in Business (International Business)

The international business concentration provides students with extensive backgrounds in international business issues such as finance, law, marketing, accounting, and economics. Students have numerous curriculum choices so may tailor their degree to their own area of emphasis. The faculty has designed the concentration to facilitate students wishing to double major in an existing business discipline and in international business. Students who concentrate in international business are also required to take international courses outside the school of business to help them develop an expertise in a particular geographic area or culture. This major provides business students with the kind of cultural grounding so significant to success in global business.

Academic Advising

The mission of the academic advising program in the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is to promote academic success, student satisfaction, and increased retention by providing students with advisors to help students make educational, career, and personal decisions.

The policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and freshmen and sophomores are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all freshmen and sophomores prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.
