College Catalog Information
International Business Minor
The School of Business is committed to preparing students for the challenges of today's global business environment. The objective is to provide students with a set of managerial and interpersonal skills, which are necessary to successfully conduct international business.
The job outlook is wide open for those who develop competencies for the multicultural marketplace. A great number of American firms have international offices or international operations.
Two opportunities to obtain international business education are now offered through the School of Business. The first involves a concentration within the Business Administration degree. The second is the newly created International Business minor, funded by a federal Project Globalization Title VI-B grant.
International Business Concentration
In addition to the Business Administration degree requirements, students must complete an International Business three-course sequence, chosen from the following: International Business, Global Marketing, Cultural Environment of International Business, and Multinational Financial Management. Students are also advised to select elective courses dealing with the world economy, emerging global issues, ethnic and cultural differences and structures of the world order.
International Business Minor
The International Business Minor is an excellent educational complement for liberal arts & sciences or business majors who would like to receive academic preparation in international business to augment their professional career opportunities.
Learning to Think Globally
The International Business Minor curriculum provides a combination of valuable academic opportunities in theory and practice that will help students to develop the international perspective which is required for leadership in the global economy. Required business courses will provide the concepts, and the elective international courses will provide insight and understanding about historic, political, economic and social developments within the context of international business. The managers of tomorrow will need firsthand knowledge of other people's cultures and values to successfully operate in the global business environment. The importance of language study and of multicultural experiences cannot be ignored. The I.B. minor also requires the study of a modern language at the intermediate level and a short academic experience abroad--although a semester abroad is highly recommended.
The International Business Minor requires no additional credit beyond the student's particular major. Some courses in the minor should be taken during the mandatory experience abroad. If you have any questions, please consult with your academic advisor or contact Mr. Glynn English, Director of BASAC and advisor for all minors.
