International Business Concentration

International Business Concentration for business majors only

Students majoring in accounting, computer information systems, finance, management or marketing may elect to complete an International Business Concentration (IBC). The concentration provides students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the rapidly changing global business, legal and cultural environment. Graduates with an IBE increase their career choices and will be better prepared to help area businesses compete in an increasingly international market place.

In addition to the major degree program requirements, the concentration includes 18-22 hours in international courses: a 12-hour core and six hours of approved international electives. Some students pursuing an IBE may need more than 120 semester hours of credit to graduate. Interested students should seek an advisor in their major department or dean's office as early in their degree program as possible. Each department has a semester-by-semester planning guide available to assist students in course choices and sequencing.
