Office: 2083 Bartley Hall
As a result of the extraordinary changes brought on by globalization, companies need new kinds of managers—individuals who not only have strong business skills, but who are comfortable managing and communicating across cultures. A minor in International Business will supplement a business degree by providing cross-cultural skills valued by global companies.
Course Requirements for International Business Minor
Please note: IB minors are required to take an international course in their major discipline if such course is offered. An international course in each major is required if a student has more than one major. This course will also satisfy a major elective requirement. Also, ECO 3108 (Global Political Economy) is a core requirement and does not fulfill an IB minor requirement.
Plus two (2) International Business elective courses (must be from two different disciplines)
Plus One (1) international-related History or international-related Social Science selected from Geography and the Environment, History, Political Science, Psychology, or Sociology.
Language: If students have two years of a foreign language in high school, the language requirement is waived; otherwise, students are required to take two semesters of a foreign language (minimum 6 credits) at or above the introductory level.
International study experience is OPTIONAL.
