About the International Business Concentration

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.

Concentration Requirements

All courses are 3 credit hours, unless otherwise designated | Students must attain a grade of not less than C in each course.
