International Business Major

The Bachelor of Arts in International Business (IB) provides students with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary for successful careers in the global business environment.

Graduates will have not only the International Business major, but also a minor in one of the functional areas of business (finance, management, marketing, economics and information systems). With this preparation, graduates will find employment in many manufacturing, service or knowledge-based industries with international markets, international suppliers, international sources of finance or an internationally diverse workforce.
