Important Notice
As of fall 2017, the concentration in international business is being renamed global management. Students who are graduating Spring 2018, Fall 2018 or Spring 2019 will graduate from the former international business concentration. 


The international business studies program is designed for students who wish to integrate proficiency in a foreign language and understanding of a foreign culture with managerial excellence in international business. With the counseling of a faculty advisor, students cluster electives around an interest in international business as a field of academic inquiry. Study abroad is strongly recommended (although not required) for all students concentrating in International Business.

In addition to satisfying the college’s general education requirements and the cognate and core requirements for the major in business administration, students concentrating in international business studies must complete the requirements listed below.
