The International Business Concentration provides students majoring in business disciplines with the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the rapidly changing global business, legal and cultural environment.
In addition to the major degree program requirements, the concentration requires 18 to 22 hours in international courses: a 12 hour core and six hours of approved international electives. Some students pursuing an International Business Concentration may need more than 120 semester hours of credit to graduate. Interested students should contact an International Business Advisor as early in their degree program as possible.
Coursework used to meet the requirements for the concentration may not be used to meet the requirements for a major. Some courses in the International Concentration program have prerequisites which must be satisfied. These prerequisites do not count towards the concentration. A student must complete at least nine (9) upper-division semester hours in courses applied toward the International Business Concentration.
A grade of C or better is required for each course in this program to count toward the bachelor’s degree. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required.
