International Business Major (BS Traditional)

The International Business major prepares students for careers in multinational corporations, both at home and abroad. The program is built upon the same robust core of business subjects that all business majors share. Additionally, students gain an understanding of how to conduct business in a foreign country, including understanding the customs, opportunities, and challenges of working across cultures. Learning about management and leadership abroad, global marketing, logistics of international trade, and investments made in foreign markets will prepare students to work in the complex and competitive international business world.
