This interdisciplinary program builds both breadth and depth as it prepares you for a career abroad or domestic careers that require knowledge of other cultures and languages.

About the Major

As an International Business major, you build a solid foundation of international business principles and then begin to explore more in-depth areas of study that you chose. A highlight of this flexible program requires students to focus on a specific geographical area for intensive study: Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, or North America.

The program requires you to complete business and economics courses as well as additional foreign language study and area studies in departments other than economics. You spend at least one semester studying abroad in the geographic area in which you have chosen to concentrate.

The successful completion of a broad interdisciplinary major such as International Business requires considerable forethought and planning. Students should work closely with their academic advisor, the Chair of the Economics Department, and the International Programming office when developing their individualized plan of study.
